Black and white Munson

johngmunson270309-1-045
After a winter lay up in dry dock at Fraser Shipyards in Superior, the John G. Munson was over at the Murphy Fuel Dock last evening, getting fuel before moving over to the CN Dock in West Duluth to load taconite for Conneaut. The boat will probably be gone by the time the sun comes up so we will have to wait for the next trip to see the newly painted red hull with a gray and a black bow stripe. A black and white version of the boat’s paint job is above, taken at Fraser Shipyards on March 9th. After a long lineup at Midwest Energy Resources coal dock in Superior over the last couple days, no coal will be loaded there today. The CN dock, across the St. Louis River from Midwest, will be sending out two boats today with taconite for the lower lakes. Photo taken on March 09, 2007.
