Paul J. Martin transfers cargo

The Atlantic Huron (above left) will depart today with a load of taconite transferred to its cargo holds by a sister ship, the Rt. Hon. Paul J. Martin (above right). The Atlantic Huron is in a hurry to deliver this cargo to Nanticoke, Ontario so it can get back to its winter layup port at Thunder Bay before the Soo Locks close for the winter. The Martin’s winter home is beyond the Soo Locks so it has more time to get out of Lake Superior.
