Yamaska enters Duluth harbor

Name changes are a part of the International shipping scene, including the salt water ships that come to Duluth. The Yamaska will be here today to load bentonite. This ship has not been in the Twin Ports since 1999 (above). At that time, it was called the Vamand Wave. The name change happened earlier this year and that may explain the appearance of the ship here. New owners may be changing the routes for the ship, or maybe returning to older routes. Over at the Port Terminal, the Beluga Expectation was set to move into the slip vacated by the S. Pacific. Both ships came to Duluth with wind turbine parts from Spain. The S. Pacific will now load beet pulp pellets. Photo taken on August 14, 1999.
