Algocape brought 1st cement of season

The Canadian flagged Algocape arrived Monday evening with a load of cement. It should complete discharging that cargo later today and then depart. This is the first delivery of cement for St. Lawrence Cement this season. They usually discharge about one boat a month throughout the shipping season.The Polish operated Ziemia Cieszynska is in Cleveland now discharging an inbound cargo. It is scheduled to come to Duluth, arriving perhaps by April 3rd. That would be a very early date for the first salt water ship of the year. Photo taken on August 12, 2002.
