Atlantic Huron Departure

The 736 Atlantic Huron(CA) departed Duluth on a beautiful summer morning.

Launched October 18, 1983 as the Prairie Harvest for CSL Group Inc. (Canada Steamship Lines, Inc.), Montreal, PQ; this vessel was built as a "Caribbean Class" lake bulk freighter by Collingwood Shipyards Ltd., Collingwood, ON at a cost of approximately $35 million. The Prairie Harvest was the last straight deck bulker built for Canada Steamship Lines and was named in honor of the location and cargoes she was to handle. She was constructed to carry western wheat to the Atlantic seaboard and was designed and equipped to be converted to a self-unloader at a later date.
