  3. Great job, stayed up till 1am and called it quits, looked like it was stuck for awhile. Wish there was a camera that views down the canal when it makes that right turn towards the repair yard or other docks.

  4. This is Greg Hayden in Vista, California Denny. I watched the whole move on Pier B and GLA cams. After the Heritage tugs had her turned around and headed for Superior I went to bed.

    I perceive that this was a very well organized professional move, at least that I what I kept saying out loud to myself.

    Thanx Denny both timelapse clips are great. I am in the process of preparing a Ships Nostalgia post hopefully later today.

  8. Denny, Ships Nostalgia limits image posts to five per day. I have posted part one with five images. Tomorrow I will post part two with five more images.

    Thank you, thank you Denny for what you do.

  11. Thanks so much, Dennis, for putting this together for us. It was interesting to see the whole process. Great to see the United States Steel logo on the stack, too. Nostalgic.

    Sunday 9-23 I posted the second of my two posts about the Irvin move on Ships Nostalgia. If you want to read the posts just join SN. My sister Peggy, who lives in Duluth, joined SN so she could read what I post. SN encourages new users to fill out a profile and post a "hello" message but it is not required and Peggy did not do so.

    All I did was send her the above thread link twice.

  13. Once again you have made us out-of-towners feel close to the action. It's great to see the inner workings of the Harbor.
    I'll look forward to the return trip! Thank you for your above and beyond efforts!

  14. Dennis: Thank you for the great video of the Irvin being moved. We had hoped to be able to be in Duluth for the move but did not work out. So we appreciate the efforts in being able to watch. It was awesome to see all the work that went into the move.
