The Return of the Salarium
I don't see the Salarium very often. In fact, it's been a year since I saw her last. She's not a particularly unique looking boat but she has a pretty unique name.
Salarium typically carries salt. Hence her name. If I recall, Salarium is Latin for salt.
Also if I recall, salarium is the origin of the word salary. Roman soldiers would typically get paid in salt rations.
But it's kind of cool when you can get a history lesson in a boat name.

And she heads off to Calumet.
