Federal Katsura passes Canal Park

The Federal Katsura, built in 2005, came into port on Thursday for the first time. With an early start loading the ship today, the Panamanian flagged ship may leave this evening, taking its cargo of spring wheat to Puerto Cabello, a port in Venezuela on the Caribbean Sea. The bright red ship brings in a German captain and a crew mostly from the Philippines. Mary George, from the Marine Museum, took the picture above as the ship entered the Duluth harbor yesterday.
