MANITOWOC Visits, Departs

MANITOWOC arrived in Erie at 0400 on Saturday to unload salt from Fairport Harbor. The ship docked at the Mountfort Terminal, unloaded, and was outbound at 1000 bound for Fairport Harbor to load another cargo of salt. After spending all day Sunday loading at Fairport, the ship unloaded in Ashtabula this morning and is currently upbound on Lake Erie.

Below are photos of PALMERTON's departure Friday and MANITOWOC's departure Saturday.
