Clarke in at sunset, out at noon

The Philip R. Clarke arrived on Thursday evening, June 13, 2013 at 8:20 in the evening. She brought limestone in (above) and took iron ore pellets out (below). I was on the Vista Star in the picture below when we spotted the Clarke departing under the Blatnik Bridge on Friday around 1 pm.


  1. My Maternal Grandfather Ivar Pust was the Captain of the Phillip R. Clarke. In the early 60’s. He passed away in 1962 when it was still called the Pittsburgh Steamship Co. He made several passages across the Atlantic during WW2 on the convoys supplying the war effort and survived to raise a family and work his way up to master of the Phillip R. Clarke.

  2. When will the john g munson come out of winter lay up? It sure is good to see the clark still running like new!!
