|The Solina arrived off the Duluth piers on August 16 and dropped her anchor. Two weeks later, she finally came in, at 5pm on August 28, 2013. She is one of many ships owned by the Polish Steamship Company that come to Duluth. She was built in 2012 in Nantong, China and was named after the village in Poland of the same name, population 190. The village is right next to Lake Solina, a popular spa. She entered the St. Lawrence Seaway on August 4th, 2013. After stops to discharge cargo in Cleveland, Burns Harbor and Milwaukee, she arrived off the Duluth piers to wait. She had 3 passengers aboard who got an extended vacation in Duluth. One came into port, and two stayed aboard ship.|

|The Canadian flagged Algowood arrived in the Twin Ports on August 23rd, 2013 with a cargo of wheat loaded in Hamilton, Ontario. After discharging the wheat at the Riverland Dock in Duluth (previously owned by Cargill), the boat picked up fuel at Calumet fuel dock and went to the BN dock in Superior to load iron ore pellets.
These photos were taken by John Zywicki who was working on the boat at Riverland. (Click on each photo for a larger version.)

|The Thunder Bay came in from the anchorage at one minute before midnight on Friday, August 16, 2013. She is a new boat, the third of 4 new, large, red boats built for Canada Steamship Lines in Chengxi Shipyard in Jiangyin, China. She loaded coal at Midwest Energy. The Whitefish Bay, the second of the 4 new boats, was here about a month ago. The first of the group was the Baie St. Paul. She has been here 8 times since she arrived in 2012. The Baie Comeau will be the last. They and other Canadian boats have been loading coal here and taking it to the St. Lawrence River above Montreal where it is transferred to larger ocean ships that take it to Europe. It takes 3 of these new Trillium class boats to fill one of the ocean boats. The ocean boats are too big to get through the Welland Canal and other locks on the Seaway; the new Canadian boats where built as large as they could be and still be able to transit the Welland.|
