Video: LEE A. TREGURTHA Departs Erie, March 30, 2002

The 2002 shipping season was one of the earliest openings on record for the port of Erie when Interlake Steamship Company's LEE A. TREGURTHA arrived shortly after midnight on Saturday, March 30, 2002. The vessel, loaded with stone from Stoneport, Michigan, docked at the Old Ore Dock and unloaded through the night before departing at around 0900 hours.

This was the first of two trips the TREGURTHA made to Erie that season; the vessel hasn't been back since then. This six-minute video shows the TREGURTHA unloading and passing the RICHARD REISS as it departs.
