It is not so much a rush on coal as it is the only cargoes that are available right now. The Spirit could haul coal but has not in many years and would require ABS approval and an upgrade and then would not haul as much as the Bay footers. The cargo hold is smaller than the Bay footers because she has two unloading belts and it would take a lot more work to unload and clean out the hold.
