Heritage Marine story in Professional Mariner

20130413_8316The current issue of Professional Mariner (December-January 2016) has a wonderful article on Michael Ojard and his company Heritage Marine, located in Knife River and providing tug service in the Port of Duluth Superior. At right is my picture of his tug Nels J. working in the ice on April 13, 2013.


  1. Really enjoyed that information.

  2. Thanks for the informative article. It’s great to learn more about the local family of tugs. I saw the Nancy on Marine Traffic and thought ‘where’d she come from?’ Glad to know more about her special features and history .
