SPEER, PRESQUE ISLE to Depart Friday
Engine room crews on the EDGAR B. SPEER and PRESQUE ISLE reported to their vessel on Friday to begin the fit out process. Although work remains to be done on both vessels, they are both scheduled to depart on Friday morning for Lake Superior to load iron ore. I will update as I learn more. The departure on this date will allow the two to be among the first vessels to pass upbound through the Soo Locks when they open on Sunday, four days ahead of schedule.
