Trader replaces McCarthy at CN

The Great Lakes Trader arrived Duluth Friday evening at 6:15 with limestone she discharged at the Graymont Superior Lime dock in Superior. She then went to the Duluth harbor anchorage to wait for the Walter J. McCarthy, Jr. She arrived Duluth on Friday morning and was loading iron ore pellets for Zug Island, Michigan at the CN dock.
This morning (May 14, 2016), around 7 am, we see the McCarthy moving down the Duluth harbor to leave via the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge for Zug Island while the Trader is on her way to take the place of the McCarthy loading iron ore pellets at CN.

    Ken I love your stories and coverage of the ships, etc, but I swear sometimes you give us a little morsel just to let us go further on our own. Good example, Zug Island. I say, “What is Zug Island?” So off i go, cool stories on the Windsor Hum, old abandoned ferryboats, Boblo island amusement park, Detroit in general. This country has some amazing history. Thanks for opening the door!
