American Victory turns in harbor

The American Victory will be here today to load coal for Xcel Energy in Ashland. It will then move up to Silver Bay to load taconite for Ashtabula. It visited here many times as the Middletown but became the American Victory when it was sold by Oglebay Norton to American Steamship last Spring. Above, it is entering the Duluth ship canal in June, last year, just after receiving the new name. The boat retains the same colors it sailed with when owned by Oglebay Norton. However, the stack has been repainted to reflect the new owners.
