The Kaye E. Barker arrived in the Marquette Harbor, making its way over to the dock at the Shiras Power Plant. Danielle Adams was on hand to capture it all, so we could see it, too. She said that these pictures were taken as the Barker was arriving and unloading in Marquette.

Also pointed out by Danielle is that they came in first along the inside of the lower harbor breakwall and then for some reason did a complete 360 turn, where the bow was back along the inside of the breakwall, before kicking the stern out so they could back in to the dock at the Shiras Power Plant. Once docked there, they unloaded their cargo of stone, then proceeded to the LS&I dock to load ore. How is that for multi-tasking?

So my question is this... what is the stone that was unloaded, used for? Thanks in advance for filling me in!

The last is my favorite.

If it is limestone I would guess it will be crushed and used to remove sulfur from the exhaust gasses.

The stone is also used in the process of making iron ore pellets.

It is limestone

Great pictures Danielle, as always. That was quite a neat maneuver you got to see the boat make. How long did it take to do a 360 turn?

Beautiful pix Danielle, all of them!

Wish I was there right now.... or anytime for that matter, who am I kidding.... lol

Duane, I was down there for over an hour watching them
come in. I'd say it was a good 30-40 mins before they backed
over to the dock to unload. Surprisingly I was down there
alone on a beautiful day and then when I went back in the
evening not a soul around.

Thanks 4 sharing. I like those Great Lakes vessels with the pilothouse at the bow.

Awesome photography. I knew it had to be Danielle.
Nice going, Danielle!
