Courtney Burton passes South Pier Light

The Courtney Burton was laid up for two years in Toledo but came out last year to carry wheat from the Twin Ports to Buffalo, replacing the Joseph H. Frantz and Kinsman boats on that route. The vessel, like many that come to Duluth, is expected to load fuel while in port. Above, it departs Duluth on the last trip here, in September.
