The Atlantic Huron arrived this morning around 9:30 to load coal for Nova Scotia, a trip that will take her into the Atlantic. She started life in 1984 as the Prairie Harvest and became the Atlantic Huron in 1989. She lost that name to become the Melvin H. Baker in 1994. In 1998, she again assumed her current name. As her name suggests, she can sail both on the Great Lakes and the oceans. Earlier in her career, she took cargo to oil platforms off the coast of Newfoundland.
