Atlantic Huron in Duluth for taconite

The Atlantic Huron should arrive today to load taconite at the DM&IR Dock in West Duluth. It was built as the Prairie Harvest in 1984, but took its present name in 1989. It became the Melvin H. Baker in 1994 but went back to the Atlantic Huron in 1998. That name reflects the boat’s ability to venture out into the Atlantic Ocean, a place most lake boats never visit.
