The Vlieborg is in the inner harbor, at anchor, after its collision with the north pier of the ship canal on Wednesday afternoon. It appears that the ship has suffered no structural damage. If several additional inspections reveal no damage, the ship may depart Duluth sometime later today for Europe with its cargo of beet pulp pellets.
