Michipicoten has new life

The Canadian flagged Michipicoten will be here to take on fuel in Duluth and then move over to the Burlington Northern Dock in Superior to load taconite. It is the 7th visit to the Twin Ports for the boat this year. It is the former US flagged Elton Hoyt 2nd. As the Hoyt, it sat idle in Superior from 2000 until last year when it was purchased by Lower Lakes Towing, renamed and reflagged Canadian. Photo taken January 12, 2004.
