2 red and white; a US and Canadian flag

The Edgar B. Speer arrived today for her first trip to the Twin Ports this season, coming under the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge at 8:16 this morning (June 25, 2014). She will be loading iron ore pellets at the CN dock in West Duluth after she takes on fuel at the Calumet Fuel Dock at the Port Terminal. She made 9 trips here last year.The Canadian flagged Thunder Bay (below) came under the bridge this morning at 4:39; she is here for the 3rd time this season; she was here 6 times last season. Below, she is waiting at the inner anchorage for the Indiana Harbor to complete loading coal at Midwest Energy Resources (note her anchor chain off her bow).


  1. We saw her coming into Two Harbors earlier that week. What an impressive site!

  2. Also the whaleback boat Meteor is in the background behind the Speer

  3. What is the name of that white boat in the backround on the first picture?

    • That would be the JAW Iglehart – now out of service and serving as a long term storage boat for cement.
