Gadwall arrives Duluth from anchor

The Gadwall has been at anchor off the Duluth piers for a day but came in last night around 8 pm (above). This is the end of the maiden voyage for the brand new ship, flying a Hong Kong flag and owned by the Gadwall Shipping Company in Hong Kong. The ship is operated with officers and crew all from China. While here, they will be loading beet pulp pellets, a by-product of sugar beet processing in North Dakota and used for animal feed in Europe. Photo taken on June 12, 2007.
