Yarmouth comes in from anchor

The Yarmouth has been at anchor off the Duluth piers since Saturday. It was set to come into port around 6 am this morning. It will be loading wheat for Mexico. Built in 1985, it is 601 feet long. It is owned by a Norwegian company and in fact was once called the Federal Oslo. If you look closely, you can see the old name imprinted on the hull underneath the current name. It is bright red. Above, people on the piers greeted the ship when it came into port on August 10, 2001.

Yarmouth draws near Aerial Lift Bridge

The Yarmouth was built in 1985. Owned by a Norwegian company, it once sailed as the Federal Oslo. It will be loading bentonite today and Sunday before departing with that cargo for Amsterdam. Since Amsterdam is a big transshipping port, the cargo will likely be transferred to another boat, a truck or a train for transfer to a further destination, probably in Europe.
