A barge named James L. Kuber

I suppose if you only have one boat coming in for the day, it might as well be the biggest boat on the Great Lakes, and that is what we have today. The Paul R. Tregurtha will be here to load coal for the Detroit Edison power plant in St. Clair, Michigan. That happens about once a week during the shipping season. The steamship Reserve used to come here, not as often, but still fairly regularly. It was back in the Twin Ports yesterday, but everything behind the self unloader has been removed, replaced by a notch for a tug. The Reserve is now a barge named the James L. Kuber. After discharging limestone in the port, the barge, pushed by the tug Victory, departed on Friday afternoon (above) for Silver Bay to load iron ore pellets.
