algosteel20091004_3703The Algosteel was built in 1966 as the A. S. Glossbrenner. She has 16 hatches above deck that feed 6 cargo holds below deck. She also sailed under the name Algogulf for a while but she got a self unloader added to her deck in 1990 and she became the Algosteel. True to her name, she has carried iron ore pellets, often to US steel mills but she also loads a wide variety of other cargos.

    What do you mean by Jäg? Jäg is Swedish for I.

  2. Just saw the boat roll through Duluth at quarter after Jäg on America’s birthday, 2014. What a pleaseant surprise. The boat is a microcosm and fundamentally represents what out nation was built upon. TYBG for NAFTA.
