The Stewart J. Cort was making her way up Lake Huron. I had just missed her at Mackinaw. I didn't have a chance to catch her as she was passing DeTour. I tried to catch her on the way up but I couldn't find a good spot to do so.
But I did catch up to her at Mission Point. She is another ship that I don't see often enough but it seems like I see her every time I'm up at the Soo.
She pretty much exclusively travels between Superior, Wisconsin and Gary, Indiana. I don't think she has made many trips down Lake Huron. She has a unique shuttle unloader that makes it difficult for her to use other ports.
She sports the #1 on her deckhouse because she was the first 1000 footer on the Lakes.
She is the only classically configured 1000 footer with her pilothouse to the front.
