Capt. Henry Jackman docked

It is a busy day today. Four boats are loading coal, and four are here to load taconite. The CSL Tadoussac arrived to discharge salt and will depart with taconite. The Alpena is bringing in cement and the Kwintebank will be here with lumber. It is odd that with all that activity not one boat is here to load grain. The Capt. Henry Jackman (above) was here earlier this week for only the 5th time since 1996.
