The Great Lakes Towing Company and McKeil Marine performed a joint assist on the CSL ASSINBOINE, a 739-foot laker in Canadian Steamship Company’s fleet. The Great Lakes Towing Company tug NORTH CAROLINA departed Duluth and met McKeil Marine’s tug LEONARD M with the CSL ASSINIBOINE in tow. The NORTH CAROLINA assisted the CSL ASSINIBOINE on the stern while the LEONARD M towed the vessel on the bow.
Upon arrival to Duluth Friday night, the LEONORD M was released. The Great Lakes Towing Company tugs NORTH CAROLINA, NORTH DAKOTA, and MINNESOTA broke ice in the harbor and further assisted the CSL ASSINIBOINE to Fraser Shipyard for repairs.
