|The Algoma Montrealais arrived Duluth early this morning to discharge a cargo of cement at the Holcim dock in Duluth. Holly Jorgenson took the picture above while the freighter was at the cement dock; she also took the picture of the Isadora below while the boat was loading grain at the CHS 2 dock in Superior. This is the 18th visit the Polish owned Isadora has made to Duluth since she was built in 1999. This is the 82nd visit for the Montrealais since 1996; she of course made many more here from when she was built in 1962 to 1996; I just wasn’t here for them.|

|The Great Lakes Towing tug Missouri brought the tugs Indiana and Arkansas into port yesterday to replace the tugs North Dakota and Kentucky. Today (October 18, 2014), she departed with the Kentucky and the North Dakota, two tugs that take with them a lot of harbor history guiding salt water ships as well as thousand footers around the port and breaking ice in the harbor for all who needed a clear path.|

|We started the day (Friday, October 17, 2014) with 4 Great Lakes Towing tugs, the Minnesota, Kentucky, North Carolina and North Dakota tied up at their dock in Duluth. By noon, the tugs Indiana and Arkansas had joined the lineup replacing the Kentucky and North Dakota. Above, the Indiana (2nd from left) and Arkansas (third from left) had joined the lineup.
That’s the Kentucky still tied up on the left; she will be leaving and the North Carolina is at the head of the line here. She will be staying along with the Minnesota. Below, the tug Missouri pulled the Arkansas and Indiana under the Lift Bridge this morning.
