Great Lakes Trader makes it in while the sun still shines

The Great Lakes Trader made her first trip to the Twin Ports in September, 2000 and has been to the Twin Ports 127 times since. Today (November 29, 2011) is her 12th visit this season. On this trip, she brought in limestone to discharge before leaving to load iron ore pellets in Silver Bay. Often when in the Twin Ports, after the vessel is tied up at a dock, the tug will disengage from the barge and go over to the Murphy Fuel Dock to load fuel, a distinct advantage over the other one piece boats than can only do one thing at a time.
