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.
 A shot of her pilothouse.
 Another shot of her pilothouse.
And she heads off to Calumet.
