American Fortitude brings limestone from Calcite

The American Fortitude, seen above departing Duluth in August, 2006, should have arrived in port with limestone loaded at Calcite, Michigan. After discharging that cargo, it will go to Silver Bay to load iron ore pellets to take to the Cleveland Bulk Terminal at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River. This is only the 3rd trip the boat has made to the Twin Ports this season. Last year, it was here 14 times.
