Federal Sakura follows towed Sherwin out

The Federal Sakura (on left side of combined picture above) arrived off the Duluth piers last weekend and finally departed Friday evening. The John Sherwin (right side) arrived in the harbor 25 years ago and finally departed Duluth just before the Federal Sakura. The Sherwin is being towed to Chicago by the Great Lakes tug Ohio. The Federal Sakura left for Thunder Bay to continue loading wheat for Algeria.
