Algoma Spirit here for wheat

Last winter the Sandviken was sold by Viken Shipping in Bergen, Norway to Algoma Central Railway, a Canadian shipping company that sends many boats such as the Algolake and the Algonorth to the Twin Ports. The ship arrived in the Twin Ports yesterday as the Algoma Spirit. Because of a previous contract, the ship still has the same Filipino crew as it had when it was the Sandviken and it is still loading grain in Great Lakes ports for foreign destinations, in this case wheat for Spain. The contract has two more years on it; after that, it may work more within the Great Lakes, but it will give Algoma the opportunity to earn money from it on the ocean during the winter when the Great Lakes are iced in and most lakers are sitting at docks in winter layup.
