Isadora ready to depart Duluth

The Isadora probably arrived off the Duluth piers last night and dropped its anchor, picking up some free parking while waiting for a berth. It will probably be coming in late this morning to begin loading wheat. It should be departing Friday night for Italy. The ship was built in 1999 and is making its 10th trip to the Twin Ports. It was last here in early December last year. Above, it is departing Duluth in June of 2004. It is a Polish ship, owned by the Polish Steamship Company in Szczecin, Poland and is one of many ships the company operates that come to the port.
