That's a Shipload of Logs

Last week we reported on a major shipment of whole logs, mostly fir, bound for China aboard the Bright Life. A spokesperson for supplier Green Diamond said the ship came to our humble harbor by way of Canada in order to top off with a full shipload. (Harbor District President Mike Wilson tells us that a full load is roughly 5 million board feet.) 

Judging by the above photo taken by Journal graphic genius Lynn Jones on her lunch break, I'd say that sucker's just about at capacity. Note how much lower in the water it's sitting compared to a few days ago. This is why we dredge the entrance to Humboldt Bay.
