Ryerson even prettier now with new paint

After wintering at Fraser Shipyards (above), the Edward L. Ryerson was expected to depart the shipyard around 4 am this morning to go down the Superior channel to Burlington Northern to load iron ore pellets. After spending the winter layup in the dry dock at Fraser Shipyards, the Canadian flagged Frontenac is also expected to depart the shipyard and is also going to Burlington Northern. Both boats will bring a new coat of paint with them; the Frontenac was in for a 5-year checkup while the Ryerson only received routine maintenance over the winter layup.
