Mesabi Miner first in for winter layup

20120316_0486The Mesabi Miner came under the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge last night (January 8, 2013) at 11:51. She is the first boat to arrive for winter layup. Before taking her place at the Midwest Energy Resources coal dock for the winter, she stopped off at the Holcim Dock in Duluth for some minor repairs. (Above and below; note the red crane in picture above.)  She also stopped at Holcim for minor repairs last March (picture at right) before becoming the first departure of the new season.
