The Dutch flagged Kwintebank has come here about 3 times a year since 2003. Built in 2002 and only 435 feet long, she usually carries a crew of nine. On a previous trip, three were Dutch, one was from Ukraine and five were from the Philippines. Picture below taken Monday, November 13, 2006 while she was at the Port Terminal getting some maintenance done prior to moving over to General Mills in Superior to load beet pulp pellets for Spain. They were actually cleaning up after discharging wind turbine pieces in Milwaukee. Large pieces of cargo are often welded to the deck of a boat so they will not move during transit. Welders were on the lower deck removing welds from the Milwaukee discharge. That is actually a service that the Port Authority provides and bills for.

    A crew of nine? That’s amazing, or illegal. Two 12-hour shifts?

  3. Great shot of the Kwintebank going under the Lift Bridge at sunset.
