Kom docked in the Twin Ports

The Kom, now flying the flag of Malta, was built in 1997, came here in May, 1998 (above) to load grain and until this morning, had not been back since. It will be here to load wheat for the United Kingdom. Both the Kom and the Dutch flagged Virginiaborg may depart the port tonight, assuming no rain delays. Grain is not usually loaded when it is raining; coal and iron ore pellets are loaded rain or shine. The Kaye E. Barker will be back from its quick trip to Taconite Harbor to load coal for another quick trip to Taconite Harbor. Photo taken on November 06, 2008
