Capt. Henry Jackman here with salt

The Capt. Henry Jackman came into port last night (July 9. 2014) at 10:41 with salt to discharge at the North American Salt Company in Duluth (above). She then loaded iron ore pellets at BN in Superior. This was her 5th trip here this season; she was here only twice last year and once in 2012. She usually loads iron ore pellets when she is here and as today, sometimes brings salt in to discharge. She arrived here this past April 22nd with the help of a convoy of ships from Thunder Bay, escorted by the Coast Guard.


  1. I was just on Boatnerds checking traffic on the Great Lakes mostly Superior, and it looks like there is A traffic jam At the Soo Locks! One Tregurtha going downstream and one coming up, along with several others going both ways. Looks like it’s going to keep Ken busy keeping track of everybody’s comings and goings!
