Federal Patroller has had many names

On April 19th, the Federal Patroller departed Montreal for Burns Harbor to discharge general cargo. On the 24th, it left Burns Harbor for Duluth, arriving Sunday around 5 pm (above). It was last here in April, 2004 but it was called the Atlantic Patroller. Built in 1999, it has also been named the Atlantic Pride, the Seaboard Rover and the African Patroller. It is the first of two ships that will be loading chromium ore at the Hallett Dock in the next couple days. Both ships will carry the cargo to Sweden where it is used in the making of steel.
