When the Baie Comeau exited the Duluth Harbor last week the Heritage Martine Tugs helped it get through the ice. They broke up the ice around the dock and then assisted it as it turned down the St. Louis River toward the Harbor.

The Helen H and the Nels J raced up and down the river to break up the ice. The Ice Breaker Alder was in port so the tugs had to undertake the ice breaking operation.

As the Baie Comeau reached the Harbor it had to make a left turn toward Duluth. The two Tugs spent considerable time breaking the ice prior to the turn. In a couple of cases they seemed awfully close to the Baie Comeau.

After the ship turned the two Tugs spent time breaking up the Ice in the harbor before the Baie Comeau exited through an ice free ship canal.
