Good-byes all around

Launched earlier this year, the Canadian flagged Baie Comeau made 7 trips to the Twin Ports this season, discharging grain on one trip and loading coal 3 times. She departed today (January 9,  2014) with her 3rd cargo of iron ore pellets. Two Heritage Marine tugs, the Helen H. above, and the Nels J. below cleared a path through the ice on her departure.


  1. Rita from Georgia says:

    It would be interesting to hear the sounds of the ice on the hulls of the lakers and the tugs. Wonder if it is loud inside the boat? And it would probably sound different in each one. The pictures are cool, but I get the shivers just seeing them. Thanks, Ken.
