The twin ports has a rich maritime history and Friday night brought a rare moment that we caught on camera.

There are plenty of lakers that go under the Aerial Lift Bridge but they're not usually being towed.  

The CSL Assiniboine, a 739 foot laker, was being towed all the way from Thunder Bay to Duluth by the tug, The Leonard M.  

The Assiniboine is on her way to the Fraser ship yards for repairs.  

Mary George of the Duluth Maritime museum believes the ship was damaged by a submerged buoy while traveling on the St. Marys River.
