A dozen or so ships will usually winter in Duluth, often receiving maintenance or upgrades at the shipyard or docks there. Ice in the harbor is no problem for a moored freighter. A Coast Guard icebreaker will break out the harbor so ships can get underway with their first loads in time to arrive at the Soo Locks when they open.
