The Apollon is the former Spring Laker. Built in Japan in 1996, she became the Apollon in 2006. Holly Jorgenson took the picture above as she entered the Duluth ship canal on Wednesday, April 29, 2015. Below, she is departing Duluth on August 10, 1998.

    I just saw her come into the Duluth harbor on the webcam. Exciting to see!

  2. Tristin Woolf says:

    She is in Thunder Bay now, she sat at Welland Canal anchorage for quite a long time, then she came out of her nap and steamed to Thunder Bay. It would be neat for her to come back to Duluth after all these years.

  3. Anne M Mobley says:

    Just saw her on the Detroit River heading south. I had never seen a grain hauler like her before, with the four towers.
