Wicko arrived Duluth 08/23/2015

Wicko arrived Duluth at 16:00 today to load grain.


  1. Where's Skeeter Den ?? Haven't seen any of his work yet. Penny

  2. Penny,
    Skeeter and Buzz are both grounded due to high winds. With the 25-35 MPH winds the past two days they would have ended up in Wisconsin. Looks like Wednesday will be the next good day.

  3. Looking forward to it. Thanks

  4. Canal cam is down...thank you

  5. Thanks for the heads up--- should be back now!

  6. A Master Salute ♫♫♫ ♪♪ to the Stewart j Cort which comes in tonight.

    1. It was really sad to hear about the crew member that went overboard. :(

  7. Oh, how very sad. Just read the article. My thoughts are with his family and fellow crewmembers. Penny

    Freighter crewman jumped overboard after confronted about alcohol, sheriff says

    8/26 - Ludington, Mich. – The crewman who went overboard from a Great Lakes freighter north of Ludington jumped after he was confronted about his drinking, Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole has said.

    "It came out that the individual was confronted about alcohol use," Cole said Tuesday, Aug. 25. "Apparently the company has a zero tolerance policy. He was told he'd stay in his quarters until the ship made port."

    Instead, the 41-year-old Cleveland, Ohio, man ran up on deck and jumped into Lake Michigan, Cole said. He has not been found. Cole did not release the man's name.

    The sheriff said his detectives interviewed 22 members of the ship's crew Monday, Aug. 24. Cole earlier said three detectives from Mason County and a deputy further north have been part of the investigation, along with the Coast Guard.

    The man went overboard from the Stewart J. Cort at 1:15 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 22, off Mason County.
