Maritime Trader in all her blue glory

The parade at the CHS grain terminal in Superior continues. On Wednesday evening, the Isolda was there loading grain. As it was departing on Friday afternoon, it passed the Canadian Provider coming to to take her place at CHS. Saturday evening, the Maritime Trader came into port (above) and shortly after that, the Canadian Provider departed the dock, making way for the Trader to take her place. The Maritime Trader had been at anchor while waiting for the dock to clear. It is a beautiful boat, newly painted in the bright blue colors of Voyageur Maritime Trading, who recently purchased the boat before it might have been sent to the scrap pile. At the time, in 2005, it was sitting at a dock in Goderich as a storage bin for some grain. Photo taken on August 04, 2007.
