She departed China in December of that year to sail to Montreal, a 61-day trip, and begin her life as a Great Lakes bulk carrier. She made her first trip to Duluth Superior in early June, 2015 to load iron ore pellets. Before she departed Montreal, temporary reinforcing plates, needed for her ocean passage,  were removed. The Great Lakes are nowhere near as challenging to a vessel’s hull as ocean travel. Photo in insert was taken by Paul Scinocca on the boat’s first visit to the Twin Ports on June 13, 2015 while she was loading iron ore pellets at the BNSF dock in Superior.
