American Mariner coming in for coal

The American Mariner came into port on Sunday afternoon (above) to load coal. It probably departed for Milwaukee very early this morning. Three salt water ships will be moving in the harbor today. The Dutch flagged Jumbo Vision is expected around noon with 12 large containment vessels that will eventually go to oil sands projects in Alberta. Later today, the BBC Maine, flying the flag of Antigua, will depart with grain and the Dutch flagged Vlistborg will leave with beet pulp pellets. Photo taken on November 16, 2008
