Edward L. Ryerson here for 2nd trip

The salt water vessel Persenk arrived and dropped anchor off the Duluth piers on Monday. The Maltese flagged ship was expected to come into port last night to load grain at CHS in Superior. This is only the third trip this ship has made to the Twin Ports since 1996. It was here once in 2003 and again in 2006. Earlier in the day, the Edward L. Ryerson came under the Lift Bridge (above) to load iron ore pellets at the CN dock in West Duluth. This is the second trip here for the Ryerson, a boat many think is the prettiest boat on the Great Lakes. If not the prettiest, it is certainly unique.
