Federal Danube enters Duluth ship canal

The Federal Danube arrived in Duluth on Wednesday afternoon to load durum wheat for Ravenna, Italy. The Federal Danube has a mixed crew that includes sailors from Poland, Croatia and the Philippines, among other nationalities. The ship and its crew are never really home in one place. Home is the world and the crew gets on and off at many different times and places. Today, a new first mate is flying into Duluth from Poland to replace the current first mate who will be flying home to Yugoslavia later today. Above, the Federal Danube made the turn into the Duluth ship canal from the outer anchorage on Wednesday afternoon. Photo taken on September 19, 2007.
