Biscayne Bay is Coast Guard ice breaker

The US Coast Guard ice breaker Biscayne Bay is on the way to the Twin Ports. After making a stop at Marquette, it dropped anchor off the Keweenaw last night, hoping to depart this morning for Duluth, depending upon the weather. Above, it is seen arriving in Duluth March 14th of this year. Nothing is for sure when trying to predict the arrivals and departure of shipping traffic. The Federal Asahi finally departed last night, allowing the Beluga Energy to move into the AGP terminal to load grain. The predicted arrival of the Edward L. Ryerson will not happen for some time. It has found more work that should keep it going until January. It is still scheduled to spend the winter at Fraser Shipyards in Superior. Photo taken on March 14, 2007
