Birchglen sails the world

Prior to December, 2002, the above ship (here arriving Duluth on Saturday afternoon) was called the Federal Mackenzie. It was a salt water ship taking grain from Duluth to many ports in the world. Then Canada Steamship Company purchased it, renamed it the Birchglen and it became a Canadian laker. Still owned by Canada Steamship, it is now back flying a foreign flag and working the oceans under charter to Fednav in Montreal.
