  3. Has Michipicoten gotten new engines recently? She's an older boat but really "hauling the mail" this season, over 14 knots at times.

  6. This new site 'misses" many arrivals at Two Harbors. Why?

  7. I'm sure Dennis has a better answer than I do, but I find I need to switch between both cams to "catch" the boats as they enter depending on the angle they enter at.

    1. My question is about the missing boats on the schedule, not cameras.

    2. I heard that the people that ran the ols schedules quit. It's a shame, it's now hit and miss at Two Harbors and Superior. Does any one know of a schedule we could go to?

    3. The schedule changes quite often for Two Harbors. If you want to find out what's been here and when, there's a chronicle of the ships out of TH at https://www.facebook.com/twoharborsboats or https://www.twitter.com/twoharborsboats

  8. The scheduling site is still a work in progress. There are still some technical difficulties linking the AIS. It is coming along nicely though and is manages by the Marine Museum staff.

  9. One easy way is to go to marinetraffic.com, right click on the boat and click on the port of destination. This will give you the remaining enroute time.

  10. i like the older version of shipping information better.

  11. it seems like they shift around the ships if one port is really busy. Like right now the Algoma is waiting to get into Two Harbors with the Block in there now and the Speer about4-5 hours out. Will the Speer end up going somewhere else?

    2. Thank you, Jim. That one is a little easier to read/figure out for me.

  13. Appreciate that Harbor Lookout is being done by Marine Museum site on this page with Kenneth Newhams not being able to continue the Duluth Shipping News. Technology is always changing! During development of this site, it would be nice if a comment field could be added stating what ship is doing like getting fuel or what dock going to like we had on Shipping News.

    1. I agree. This one seems to have a lot of gaps so far. Only lists some ships and I'd like to know their status like the old one had--what's in--and the other ships as well as the freighters. I always check the map which is a little more likely to have what is coming and going.

  19. Curious about the crowd that gathers at the canal as a boat approaches. What alerts them to an approaching boat. Is there a bridge bell or what.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There is a phone # you can call for a schedule, plus if you're in the Canal area the bridge operator makes an announcement when the bridge is going up, plus a bell rings as the bridge goes up/down.

    2. Thank you so much. I suspected there was a bridge bell. Living in Alabama I am fascinated with this wonderful website.We have river barges but nothing like tis. However, we do have bamabeachcams.com.

  20. I sure hope the Clarke isn't really leaving Duluth until 12/31...hopefully a mis type. :)

  21. At the Lake Superior Marine Museum there are TV monitors, and they show when boats will arrive and depart and their estimated times. Thus, people know when to show up if they like.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Are the monitors located in the downtown area as the crowd appears to be coming from that direction?

      Delete
    2. NO the TV monitors are at the Marine Museum. People that know when the boats are coming or going, walk down to the Duluth Entry to watch. They are coming down from the lake walk and the areas in and around Canal Park.

  22. Since Duluth is on a hill you can see them coming and you can also see them getting ready to leave the harbor from many locations.

  23. What ever happened to the link for the PPMI cam? I noticed that if you google it you can still find the cam but it no longer has a link on this site?

    1. PPMI cam is now blocked by a new hotel.

  26. Would be nice to go back to the old way, which also included a chance to see photos of the boat for those who have not see it before

    ReplyDelete
  27. How come once in awhile a boat is listed to come in a particular time and when that time comes the boat does not show up and when you check the schedule again it is not even listed anymore??? Did it sink?? Ha!

    1. looks to me to be just a lack of effort/laziness.
      I can see several "mistakes"on the current schedule.Burns harbor..1082x112...wonder how it fits through the locks?
      Presque Isle...112 ft wide?
      Am Integrity...no width??Come on!!!
      Just plain lack of effort....in fact I can fix this stuff if you give me access to it.Anything worth doing is worth doing right.Come on folks!

    2. The schedule is a work in progress and getting better as time goes on. Lot's of automatic inputs and calculations that don't always work right. You can always do your own estimates on marinetraffic.com -- just right click and measure.

  28. Ypu can still get the PPMI cam. Go to the great lakes webcams then lk superior then go to Duluth cam scroll down the menu at the bottom left side has all the cams including that one. You can still see the marina but not much else.
