Holiday Surprise

The Stewart J. Cort has been loading iron ore pellets at the BNSF in Superior for many years. She is one the most frequent visitors we have and yet, it is only every two or three years that she appears on the horizon and comes under the Lift Bridge as she did today on Labor Day, 2016. She is now waiting for the Burns Harbor to complete loading iron ore pellets there, which should be later tonight.


  1. Marianne Lauher says:

    You sometimes forget what the ‘older’ ore boats look like!!

  2. Just to add some additional interest, the ‘Cort is skippered by Capt. Greg Sipper, of Hermantown and his brother, I believe is an Engineer for Great Lakes Fleet and an accomplished marine photographer.
