1000 ft Lakers in Review as they pass through the Duluth Shipping Canal

Thirteen 1000 ft Lakers were built in the late 70's and early 80's to  efficiently transport ore and coal across the Great Lakes.

At one time or another all of these boats have visited Duluth to load the raw material to generate the power and make the steel that America needs.

This 3 minute video is a compilation of all of these huge vessels as they entered the Duluth Shipping Canal at one time or another.


  1. Thanks Den...Good edits and nice video. Enjoy the fall colors in the area. Good time to get the Drone up.

  2. That was fantastic! Thanks Dennis.

  3. Awesome. Thank you.

  4. Thanks for the parade of the 1000 footers!

  5. Thank you for putting that together, that was a very special treat! All those great ships plus the horns...!
    I remember when the Presque Isle first came to Two Harbors, my Grampa was so excited about that big new ship. Was noticably bigger in that harbor. Thank you again, I love watching these ships.
