Federal St. Laurent last saltie in

federalstlaurent240902-1 002
The Federal St. Laurent should be here this afternoon to load soy beans for Finland. This will be the 10th trip here since it arrived on June 6, 1996 as a brand new, bright red ship. It is still red but with saltwater, locks and docks working away on it over the last 10 years, the bright is probably gone. It will most likely be the last salt water ship of the season.

Federal St. Laurent

The Federal St. Laurent came into port Monday evening. It made a big splash when it was here in 1996. It was brand new, large and very red. Today, it is not quite new, but still very red and very large. The ship’s crew, all from India, will take their cargo of wheat from Duluth to Italy, leaving sometime later today. Photo taken April 6, 1998.
