Milo chased by Vista King

The BBC Atlantic should be here today to load spring wheat for Sweden. This is a new ship, built just last year. It probably won’t surprise you to know that it has a sister ship named BBC Pacific, plus a second sister called BBC Baltic. It may be at the anchorage just off the Duluth piers by morning, waiting there for the Milo to complete loading spring wheat for Italy. The Milo was built in Japan in 1984 and started life as the Silver Leader. It has also sailed as the Alam United and the United. Above, the Milo departs the Twin Ports last June, followed closely by the Vista King cruise boat.
