Out of fog appears Ypermachos

The Ypermachos (now the Zuni Princess) has been at anchor for the last couple days, often hidden behind the fog. It lifted a bit yesterday allowing the picture above to be taken. This ship is the same ship that ran aground off Park Point in November, 1985. It has also been here as the Mecta Sea and the Union. On those trips, you could still see some of the letters from the ship’s original name, Socrates, imprinted on the side of the ship. It may come in this afternoon to go over to the Peavey Company’s Connor’s Point Elevator in Superior to load spring wheat for Italy.
