Watch Duluth battle ice in 2008

Watch from the Alder pilot house as she and the tug Kentucky help the Mesabi Miner get to her layup dock after getting stuck in the ice just after going under the Lift Bridge.

Two months later, the same actors were on the same stage as the Miner looked for help with the ice as she started the new shipping season. Watch Miner Captain Scot Briggs plan the next day’s departure in the Alder wardroom (officers mess) with Alder Captain Kevin Wirth.
