Who We Are...

    The Great Lakes Steel Boat Club is family oriented for employees, retirees and friends of the Great Lakes Steel Works of the United States Steel Corporation.  The club will soon celebrate its 50th anniversary.

What We Do...

    The Great Lakes Steel Boat Club publishes a monthly newsletter called the "Channel Marker" which is full of information and events for Great Lakes Steel Boat Club members. The newsletter contains a reminder about our upcoming events.  Electronic versions of the newsletter are available on this web site. It downloads to a word or PDF file. Thus, you must have Word or Adobe Reader on your computer.

Where We Are...

    The Great Lakes Steel Boat Club is located on the Detroit River about one mile south of the Rouge River short cut channel.  The Club is accessed from Great Lakes Avenue, River Rouge, Michigan.  A custom Google map is located at the Satellite Map link on the left main menu column.  It takes a little time to load as there is a lot of data.  The GLSBC is on property leased from USS, the access roads also belong to USS.  Please respect their property. Thank You. 

Did You Know...

    There is a link on the main page describing Marine Grounding Systems systems from West Marine.  Improper wiring on your boat could not only damage your boat but also your neighbor's boat.  A number of years ago, I found a factory installed bilge pump reverse wired.  The (+) lead was under water.  Very bad.
