Michipicoten here for taconite

The Michipicoten will be here today to load taconite at the DM&IR Dock in West Duluth. It is the former US flagged Elton Hoyt 2nd. As the Hoyt, it sat idle in Superior from 2000 until April, 2003 when it was purchased by Lower Lakes Towing, reflagged Canadian and renamed the Michipicoten. This is the boat’s 8th trip here this season. As today, it loaded taconite on the first 7.
