Middletown is now American Victory

The American Victory came into port last night (above) with a load of limestone picked up at Port Dolomite, Michigan. It was formerly the Middletown but when it was sold by Oglebay Norton to American Steamship a few weeks ago, the name and some paint on the hull of the boat were changed. It now has an American Steamship color stack, red and black. When it completes discharging the limestone, it will go to Silver Bay to load taconite pellets for Cleveland.
