The question now is if she'll come back from the fire last winter.

 Post subject: Bloughs Final Salute
Unread postPosted: September 19, 2021, 10:31 am 
For more than a few years, through a few economic downturns, I have wondered...what about the Roger Blough? What kept this freighter alive when traditional boom self unloaders were the order of the day? How long would GLF customers continue to assist with shoreside hoppers for the Blough to unload? I get the fact that GLF has other footers that can carry big tonnage, but what about the Blough? How many more economic downturns will she survive? The Blough is one of my favorite ships to watch, but that will not save her unfortunately.
