She was equipped with a bow thruster and 17 hatches that feed cargo into 4 cargo compartments below deck. She was a self unloader with a 250 foot boom on her deck and carried a wide variety of cargoes including stone, salt, coal/coke, aggregates, slag, iron ore, salt, fertilizers, grain products, gypsum, quartzite, and sand. She only made 8 trips to Duluth Superior between 1996 and 2010. Picture above taken on Friday, December 14, 2001 when the Agawa Canyon was entering the Duluth harbor.

  1. I worked on this ship (cutting out rusted ballast bays & welding in new ones) when it was in drydock at the Frasier Shipyards in the mid 90’s.

  2. I remember seeing her passing Detroit when I lived there in late ’70s, early 80s. A beauty! Miss her…

  3. She is beautiful with her black.
