Federal Hunter

The Federal Hunter came into the inner anchorage on Monday afternoon (left). It was making its turn up the channel while the Alpena (at the right) was waiting to depart as soon as the Federal Hunter cleared. It was a two ship lift for the bridge, a treat for the visitors at the Maritime Museum and a long wait for those in cars waiting for the two ships. A little later, the Federal Hunter came back under the bridge and went to the outer anchorage to wait for the Pintail to complete loading grain at the CHS terminal in Superior.
