All roads lead to Nanticoke, Ontario, at least for three boats we expect to be here today. The Edwin H. Gott will be here to load taconite for Nanticoke, and both the Walter J. McCarthy Jr. and the Algolake are expected this morning to load coal for there also. All three should be able to complete loading their cargo and depart later today. When they are done, the Paul R. Tregurtha, the third thousand footer of the day, will load coal for Detroit Edison. It won’t depart until Thursday. Somewhere in this mix, the Herbert C. Jackson will try to load some coal for Marquette.  Photo taken on July 15, 2007.
