Menominee: First saltwater ship of 2002

Arrived: April 2, 2002 at 7:57 pm
Built in 1968 as the Holmsund, she was renamed Menominee, and then sailed as the Kathryn Spirit. I think she is no longer in service.
The Norwegian flagged Menominee was the first saltwater ship of the year in 2002, arriving on April 2, 2002 at 7:57 pm. A ship named the Menominee would not at first glance appear to be a candidate for the first saltie of the year, since it is named for a city in Michigan. The ship’s owner is from Norway but he has a good friend (and business partner) in Menominee, hence the name.She departed on April 7th (above). While here, she discharged lumber (below).
