J.W. Shelley here for second time

In December, 2004, I wrote that the Algocen was making its last trip to Duluth. After leaving here on December 18th, it arrived in Montreal and was sold to a company called Recycling Technologies, not a good sign. It was then towed to New Jersey to be used as a spoils storage barge, also not a good sign. Just in the nick of time, it was then sold to a Canadian company and brought back to the Great Lakes, rehabilitated and most notably, repainted a very bright blue. Now sailing as the J. W. Shelley, it came back to the Twin Ports last night to load grain and had actually been here once earlier this year to do the same. Photo taken on October 02, 2008
