Jason Slining and Linda Slining (left) wave to the Arthur M. Anderson as it passes through the Duluth ship canal on Thursday evening. The captain of the ship is Linda Slining's cousin, so the couple came from Ironwood, Mich. to watch it move into Lake Superior. The 767-foot Anderson has not been in service since January 2017, when it was laid up in Duluth due to subpar economic conditions. (Ellen Schmidt / firstname.lastname@example.org)
