First a correction I now know that Frazer's Shipyard in Superior, WI has TWO graving docks.

A couple of days ago Dennis O'Hara of fame posted two drone pictures of the Irvin in one of the two graving docks.

Irvin in drydock. Northern Images is Dennis O'Hara's photography business name. Just add .com for his very colorful and interesting site.


Invin in the dock. Note at the top of the screen three of the four tugs of the Heritage Tug fleet, the 4th is based in Two Harbors.


As long as his drone was in the neighborhood Denny includes this aerial shot of the Duluth Port Authority, Clure Marine Terminal "Lay-Down-Area". This area used to be TWO huge grain elevators that were closed then torn down.

A Liberian flagged ship named Industrial Strength left this morning after delivering a shipload of windmill generator sections. You can see previously delivered generators, lined up alongside the ends of tower sections; alongside the blue hull ship and further back towards the bay, where that crawler crane is.
