Alpena returns to Duluth

After spending about a month undergoing repairs in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, the Alpena is back in the cement delivery business. The last visit here for the Alpena was on October 1st. The JAW Iglehart made several trips here in place of the Alpena. This will be its 16th trip of the season to the Twin Ports. Built as the Leon Fraser in 1942, it is one of the oldest and prettiest boats working the Great Lakes, and has one of the best, and loudest, steam whistles on the Great Lakes.
