Scoter rarely visits Duluth

The Scoter has not been here since July 27, 2002 when it was here loading grain as the Peonia (above). Before that, it had made one visit a year to the Twin Ports since 1996. Built in China in 1983 as the Peonia, the recent name change probably reflects a change in ownership.
