Roger Blough comes home for the winter

rogerblough20130116_7562The Roger Blough came under the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge (right) at 11:52 this morning (January 16, 2013). She then moved over to the Port Terminal dock (below) before going to Fraser Shipyards for winter layup. Last year, she stayed at the Port Terminal for winter layup. In between winter vacations, she was here for cargo only 8 times this past season, only 6 times the year before.

The Blough has the best horn on the great lakes…can’t wait to hear it blow. Thanks for the photos.

I wish they would lengthen her by 160 feet so she could take her rightful place as Queen of the Lakes (the longest ship on the Great Lakes). The Blough is the most beautiful ship ever.

Still one of the better looking ore boats on the lakes. The current 1,000 footers just miss the “historic” looks that make ore boats unique
