Since 1996, this ship has visited the Twin Ports 23 times under 3 names She is seen here as the Oakglen departing Duluth with iron ore pellets on June 7, 2017. This is her 6th trip here since she was renamed Oakglen from Lake Ontario. While it has been a long time since she was called the Federal Danube, you can see the remains of that name on her hull, indeed as a part of the hull, below. The newest name is painted over the older name, still noticeable 23 years later.

I talked with Captain Krzysztof Wojcicki; just above, he told me his name and then offered write it out on my note pad. Later he invited me for lunch just before she left. The Captain and all his crew are from Poland. They loaded soy beans and wheat for either Ghent or Antwerp; they will be notified which of those ports to go on route.
