Visitor Tips and News About Big Ship
The big ship is still in Fergus Falls. Not sure how or why a big ship got into dry dock in the middle of Minnesota.[Chris Gemlo, 02/23/2011]
Along with the Otter and Canada Goose in Fergus Falls there is the Eagles Club/Bar. The building is in the shape of a big ship. Nothing especially neat to see inside, unless you want to see the locals crowded around the bar and the pull tab salesman or happen to come through on a night there is a wedding dance held on the lower or upper dance floors. Just a photo op of a big ship.[Holly Diestler, 09/02/2005]
