Sunday Morning: I count five anchored in the Lake between the Duluth and Superior piers. Two Ocean ships and three Lakers.


Since CSL bought the Oakglen she trades strictly on the Great Lakes/Seaway. Grain from Thunder Bay to the St. Lawrence and the ore she loads in the Twin Ports/North Shore goes to Quebec City for transshipment. She's inbound Superior as I type, replacing the Algoma Discovery that's headed for Hamilton.The Munson was supposed to join the boats waiting for BNSF #5, but she's now headed to Two Harbors.

As of the moment (11pm on 9/15) there is one boat loading, 4 at anchor in the lake, and three more en route between on Lake Superior. Yet nothing loading at CN Duluth. Similarly there are regular backups this summer at Two Harbors while Duluth is lacking on traffic. Curious why there appears to be such high demand for pellets out of Superior and Two Harbors, but much less out of Duluth.

Looks like another log (boat) jam in the Twin Ports. Does anyone know if this effects the end users production or do most mills/power plants have enough of a stock pile that it doesn't effect them.


Pretty much the whole logjam is waiting on BN #5. The Silda is anchored out, but supposedly is due in Thunder Bay.

Seems like lately there have been a lot of backups at some docks. Just the other day Two Harbors looked like a parking lot and now I see there are 3 boats on the hook for Superior. I would assume that is costing somebody some money.


There are 12 more boats due in Two Harbors over the next 7 days.
