Burns Harbor arrived Superior 04/30/2018

Burns Harbor arrived Superior early this morning to load iron pellets.


  1. Saw it. Don't ask the time. Ship depth 50'? Harbor depth 23'? Something doesn't add up.

  2. I believe the depth is measured from the deck, not the waterline!

  3. After much search we'll go with C.
    Ship from deck or top to bottom in drydock. Nothing to do with water.
    Strangely, depth is not even listed in ship definitions. They want to change it to DRAFT.
    But all vessel descriptions give the depth. PRT 50', etc.
    But no one seems to want to define DEPTH. It's not draft.

  4. But then again, maybe that's what you meant. I didn't understand it.

  5. But then again it doesn't seem like they have 30' sticking out of the water when full to allow for 23' harbor. But maybe they do.

  6. so what do they mean by the "beam and depth" Is depth on how low the actually boat sits in the water! Happy SPRING Lakes are finally starting to open west of Duluth, in LAKES COUNTRY MN!
