Federal St. Laurent last saltie in

The Federal St. Laurent should be here this afternoon to load soy beans for Finland. This will be the 10th trip here since it arrived on June 6, 1996 as a brand new, bright red ship. It is still red but with saltwater, locks and docks working away on it over the last 10 years, the bright is probably gone. It will most likely be the last salt water ship of the season.
