American Mariner, twice

When a boat comes under the Lift Bridge twice in one day, it usually comes in first and departs later in the day. The American Mariner will first depart the port this morning and then return this evening. It arrived last night (above) to load coal for Silver Bay Power and should leave this morning to deliver that cargo before returning later today to load coal for Presque Isle, Mich. In each case, it will load about 28,000 tons.
