Edwin H. Gott gets lots of attention

Five thousand footers will be here today. One of them, the Edwin H. Gott, came in last night around 6 pm (above). The Gott went to get fuel at the Murphy Fuel Dock in Duluth before heading over to the Burlington Northern dock in Superior to load iron ore pellets for Conneaut, Ohio. The Gott should be finishing up and departing through the Superior entry around 4 am. Just after that, two more thousand footers, the Paul R. Tregurtha and the tug/barge combination Presque Isle, should be arriving by way of the Duluth ship canal, and the American Century should be finishing up at Midwest Energy Resources loading coal. It will then depart, clearing the dock for the Tregurtha. Photo taken on June 17, 2009
