Duluth Layup, 2003-04

Munson last boat of the season

johngmunson201501202536
The John G. Munson closed the 2014 shipping season for the port of Duluth Superior when she arrived under the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge at 9:28 on the morning of January 20, 2015. The tug Nels J. made a trip through the Duluth harbor just before she arrived. Below, the Munson is about ready to turn the corner to the Blatnik Bridge and her winter layup home at Fraser Shipyard. The Nels J. was staying close by but the Munson seemed to have an easy time moving through the ice in the harbor.
