The Canadian Ranger, seen above in May, 2005, came into port on Tuesday morning at 5:14 to load grain. This is only the 6th trip here for the boat since 2000. It was built in 1943 in Portland, Oregon as the Grande Ronde and has had a long life on both the ocean and the Great Lakes. In 1961, it was lengthened and widened in West Germany and renamed the Hilda Marjanne. In 1984, it exchanged sterns with the Chimo and got its current name.
