For those who are interested or are in a spot where they can see the river, Tall Ship Denis Sullivan, on her way to Alpena, MI, will be passing by Downtown Detroit in the next half hour or so upbound. She was abeam of Zug Island around 10:15, & it looks like shes in full sail very unusual for a river transit. :-)

From the Dossin Webcam, you also should have also been able to see the Diamond Queen - I think we passed the Denis Sullivan somewhere around that part of the River today :-)
