Description
In 1972, the Charles M. Beeghly was lengthened by 96 feet at Fraser Shipyards (Superior, Wisconsin). She was converted to a self-unloader at Fraser Shipyards in 1981.

Her steam turbine power plant was replaced with two Bergen B:32:40L diesels during the 2008-2009 winter layup period. She returned to service in June 2009.

In 2010 the Charles M Beeghly was renamed the Hon. James L. Oberstar honoring the former congressman of the same name from Minnesota who served the US House of Representatives for nearly a half century.

Very nice laker, looks very much like CAROL LAKE. Am I right in thinking that they were built using the same blueprints. After all, Carryore was a U S Company .
