On April 5th, 1999, the Algontario, on her way to Duluth, went aground in the St. Marys River. Despite damage to the boat, it was judged safe for it to continue on to Duluth. After discharging cargo here, the boat sailed for Thunder Bay where it stayed, in layup, until last month. Repairs completed, and business in the grain trade going strong, the Algontario is again sailing the Great Lakes and is due here today to load wheat. Photo taken April 11, 1997.
