The Cornelia came in from her anchorage (above) this afternoon (November 10, 2016). After a short wait at the Port Terminal, she will move over to Riverland Ag this evening to replace the Federal Maas, that left the dock about an hour later going off to deliver her cargo.

American Mariner departs while Cornelia waits, again!

2016-1030-0033
Before departing this morning (above, on October 30, 2016), the American Mariner arrived Duluth on Friday evening, October 28, 2016 to load wheat at the General Mills elevator in Superior.

The Cornelia is at anchor off the Duluth piers waiting to come in to load grain. She arrived in the Twin Ports on October 16 with a cargo of cement she discharged at CRH, previously Holcim and before that St. Lawrence Cement. After discharging her cement cargo, she went out to the anchorage to wait before coming in for her grain cargo.

The Mariner will carry her wheat cargo to Buffalo and discharge it at General Mills grain elevators there. This was her 11th trip here this season. On other trips, she has brought limestone and loaded coal or iron ore pellets. The Cornelia is here for her second time and her second time spending more than a few days at anchor. Last year, she had some legal difficulties that kept her out there for over 40 days. Since then, she was sold and is now free of any legal entanglements; just waiting and enjoying the weather.

These two pictures of the Cornelia were taken by René Beauchamp this morning, Saturday, December 26, 2015 at Côte Ste.Catherine, just below Montreal, in the St. Lawrence Seaway. René reports she is currently (Saturday afternoon) docked at Montreal and is presumably ready to depart North American and move into the Atlantic Ocean, finally (for details about her adventures in Duluth, click here).
