CSL Tadoussac late-day Duluth departure

Sunrise would be (or was) a good time to watch some boat activity under the bridge. Two arrivals and a departure were expected. One early arrival, the CSL Tadoussac, seen above departing Duluth in July, 2002, should finish loading iron ore pellets and depart in the afternoon. It was here many times as the Tadoussac but in 2001, it was upgraded by Canada Steamship Lines and the company’s initials were attached to the boat’s name. During the upgrade, it was widened from 75 feet to 78 feet and the cargo self-unloading system was upgraded.
