American Fortitude to depart

Sometimes, boats that come into port early in the day, also leave the same day, providing boat watchers with a double chance to see the boat, although they may have to be up early in the morning to do it. The Algosoo is bringing salt into port very early this morning. After discharging that cargo, it will move over to Midwest Energy Resources in Superior to load coal. The only problem: two thousand footers, the American Integrity and the American Century, will be arriving to do the same thing. The Algosoo may get there first, second or third depending upon the progress it makes discharging salt. Perhaps two of the three will be in and out during the same day. Hopefully, some will be around when Inline Marathoners are coming around the DECC on their way to the finish line. A mystery barge, the Primary 1, should be here sometime to load wind mill parts for Buffalo. Above, the American Fortitude, here to load wheat, is departing Duluth last month. It may also come in and go out today.
