Algomarine in Twin Ports harbor

Three US flagged thousand footers should be here today to load coal at Midwest Energy Resources in Superior. They will have to wait for the 730 foot, Canadian flagged Algomarine to finish up. It was due in shortly after midnight. Seldom seen in the Twin Ports, the Algomarine was just here one week ago. Since 2002, it has only visited here once earlier this year, and once last year. The Walter J. McCarthy Jr. should closely follow the Algomarine into port and will have to wait for the berth. The McCarthy will likely wait on the Algomarine again when it gets to Ontario Power Generation later this week. That is also the destination for the Algomarine. It was built in 1968 as the Lake Manitoba. The McCarthy was built as the Belle River in 1977. Above, the Algomarine departs Duluth last July.
