Iglehart approaching Aerial Lift Bridge

It will be another busy day today at the Midwest Energy coal dock in Superior. Five boats are scheduled to arrive in port today to load coal. Some of those boats may slow down out in the Lake while others may drop anchor off the Duluth piers. The J.A.W. Iglehart will be coming here to discharge cement for perhaps the last time this season. It is set to move into layup here as soon as the cement cargo is discharged from the boat. High wind has delayed the Iglehart but the Captain picked up his anchor in Whitefish Bay last night at 8 pm and turned toward Duluth. With no more problems, the boat should be arriving Duluth Monday evening. Above, the Iglehart arrives Duluth in late October, 2005.

  1. Nice picture, but it’s sad to think this was probably her last voyage.
