Canadian Navigator

The Canadian Navigator should have arrived last night and will be departing early morning. This is its second visit this year, and as usual, it will go to Midwest Energy Resources in Superior to load coal for Ontario Power Generation in Nanticoke. It was built in 1967 in Great Britain for salt water duty. After the boat was lengthened twice and the cargo capacity was also increased, it was sold in 1975 to Upper Lakes Group and moved over to Great Lakes service. Several name changes followed; it became the Canadian Navigator in 1980.
