Mesabi Miner comes back for more coal

The Mesabi Miner came in this morning (March 19, 2012) at 9:15 in the morning, a little earlier than expected, probably making up for the delays she had departing. In each case she was the first of the year, to depart and arrive. Later today, she will be the 2nd boat to depart this season when she takes coal to Taconite Harbor.


  1. I think these boats are amazing. Makes you wonder how such massive water beasts float on top of the body of water.

  2. I think her owners just like to make her work for her dinner, but better that than being in layup over at the shipyards.

  3. Paul Sando says:

    Not letting any moss grow on her anchor chains are they? They must have a mortgage to pay.
