It was a tough day for the Presque Isle. The Coast Guard said it scraped the side of the Duluth pier, as she headed out under the Aerial Lift Bridge.

This was around 7:30am on Monday. The Duluth Seaway Port Authority said the vessel is a tug/barge.

Video captured by someone at the canal showed the boat getting too close and scraping alongside the pier.

She proceeded through the canal, and anchored for awhile outside the harbor. Later, she returned through the Duluth entry.

The port said she went to the Clure Public Marine Terminal for further inspection by U.S. Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit-Duluth, which is investigating.
