Description
The Stewart J. Cort was the first 1000-foot vessel on the Great Lakes when she entered service for Bethlehem Steel Corporation in 1972. It is also the only 1000-footer with the pilot house and crew accommodations forward.

The bow and stern sections, built by Ingalls Shipbuilding (Pascagoula, Mississippi), were joined together and called “Stubby” for the trip to the Great Lakes. At Erie Marine (Erie, Pennsylvania), “Stubby” was cut apart and joined with the midbody built there.
