effectually to the lien hereof and to the payment of the Secured Obligations and
for operation of the Vessel as herein provided, and (in case of an Event of
Default) to effectuate sales as provided in Article III hereof.

                                  ARTICLE III

     3.2  Remedies.  If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be
          --------
continuing, then the Mortgagee may, in every case and concurrently or
separately:

     (a)  Exercise any or all remedies available to Mortgagee under the Loan
Agreement, including without limitation acceleration of payment of all Secured
Obligations;

     (b)  Exercise all the rights and remedies provided (i) under this Mortgage;
(ii) in foreclosure and otherwise given to mortgagees by the provisions of
Chapter 313 and acts amendatory thereof and supplementary thereto; and (iii) to
the extent not preempted by federal law, to a secured party when a debtor is in
default under a security agreement by the Indiana Uniform Commercial Code;

     (c)  Exercise any other right or remedy provided by law or agreement,
including without limitation the right to recover deficiency or other judgment
for any amount due under the Loan Agreement or hereunder;

     (d)  Take and enter into possession of the Vessel, at any time, wherever
the same may be, without legal process and without being responsible for loss or
damage, and the Mortgagor or other person in possession shall forthwith, upon
demand of the Mortgagee, surrender to the Mortgagee possession of the Vessel and
the Mortgagee may, without being responsible for loss or damage except in case
of the Mortgagee's own gross negligence, willful misconduct or bad faith, hold,
lay up, lease, charter, operate or otherwise use the Vessel for such time and
upon such terms as it may deem to be for its best advantage, accounting only for
the net profits, if any, arising from such use of the Vessel and charging upon
all receipts from the use of the Vessel or from any sale thereof or from the
exercise of any of the powers conferred by subparagraph (e) next following, all
costs, expenses, charges, damages or losses by reason of such use and with the
right to dock the Vessel free of charge at the Mortgagor's dock located at
Buffington Harbor, Gary, Indiana (or elsewhere at Mortgagor's expense);

     (e)  Demand, collect, receive, compromise and sue for, so far as may be
permitted by law, in the name of the Mortgagor, all earnings, revenues, income
and profits of the Vessel, all amounts due from insurers under any insurance
thereon as payments of losses or as return premiums or otherwise, all salvage
awards and recoveries, all recoveries in general average or otherwise, and all
other sums due or to become due in respect of the Vessel, or in respect of any
insurance thereon, from any person whomsoever, and to make, give and execute in
the name of the Mortgagor acquittances, receipts, releases or other discharges
for the same, and to endorse and accept in the name of the Mortgagor all
instruments in writing with respect to the foregoing, and the Mortgagor does
hereby irrevocably appoint the Mortgagee the true and lawful attorney-in-fact of
the Mortgagor, upon the happening of an Event of Default, to do all said acts;
and

     (f)  Take and enter into possession of the Vessel at any time, wherever the
same may be, without legal process and, if it seems desirable to the Mortgagee
and without being responsible for loss or damage except in case of the
Mortgagee's own gross negligence, willful misconduct or bad faith, sell the
Vessel upon such terms and conditions as the Mortgagee may determine, free from
any claim of or by the
<PAGE>

Mortgagor, at a public sale or sales after advertisement or at a private sale or
sales after notice to the Mortgagor, at any place as the Mortgagee may specify
and in such commercially reasonable manner as the Mortgagee may deem advisable.

     In any suit to enforce its rights, powers or remedies, the Mortgagee shall
be entitled as a matter of right (i) to the appointment of a receiver or
receivers of the Vessel and the earnings thereof with full rights and powers to
use and operate the Vessel, and (ii) to a decree ordering and directing the sale
and disposition of the Vessel. The Mortgagee may become the purchaser at the
said sale, and the Mortgagee shall have the right to credit on the purchase
price any and all sums of money due to the Mortgagee hereunder.

     Each and every right and remedy provided in this Section 3.2 shall be
cumulative and in addition to every other remedy given hereunder or otherwise
existing.  The exercise of any right or remedy shall not be construed to be a
waiver of the right to exercise at the same time or thereafter any other right
or remedy.  No waiver, delay or omission by the Mortgagee in the exercise of any
right or remedy accruing upon any Event of Default shall impair the Mortgagee's
right to exercise such right or remedy or be construed to be a waiver of any
such Event of Default or to be any acquiescence therein.  Nothing contained
herein shall limit any rights or remedies available to the Mortgagee under the
Loan Documents, regardless of the existence of an Event of Default.

     Nothing in this Section 3.2 shall be interpreted in such manner as to
permit the Mortgagor to act unreasonably or exercise any remedies contrary to
applicable law.

     3.3  Application of Moneys.  The proceeds of any judicial or other sale of
          ---------------------
the Vessel and the net earnings from any management, charter, lease, operation
or other use of the Vessel, under any of the powers specified in Section 3.2,
together with the proceeds of any insurance, claim for damages, or judgment and
any other moneys received from or for the account of the Mortgagor pursuant
hereto or otherwise shall be applied in accordance with the provisions of the
Loan Agreement, including but not limited to those provisions set forth in
Section 2.2 and Section 5.2 of the Loan Agreement.

     3.4  Advances and Entry by Mortgagee.  If the Mortgagor shall default in
          -------------------------------
the performance or observance of any of the covenants in this Mortgage, the
Mortgagee may, in its discretion, do any act or make any expenditures Mortgagee
deems necessary or appropriate to remedy such default or protect Mortgagee's
rights, including, without limitation of the foregoing, the obtaining of
insurance, the payment and discharge of taxes and liens, entry upon the Vessel
to make repairs (and for that purpose docking and maintaining the Vessel) and
defending suits.  The Mortgagor shall reimburse the Mortgagee on demand, with
interest at the Default Rate for any and all reasonable expenditures so made or
incurred.  Until the Mortgagor has so reimbursed the Mortgagee for such
expenditures, advances and expenses, the amount thereof shall be a debt due from
the Mortgagor to the Mortgagee, and payment thereof shall be secured by the lien
of this Mortgage.

     3.5  Sales, etc. of Certain Assets.  Unless and until one or more Events of
          -----------------------------
Default shall occur and be continuing, the Mortgagor (a) shall be permitted to
retain
<PAGE>

actual possession and use of the Vessel and (b) shall have the right, from time
to time, in its discretion and without application to the Mortgagee, and without
obtaining a release therefrom by the Mortgagee, to dispose of free from the lien
hereof any engines, boilers, machinery, covers, masts, bowspirits, boats, spars,
anchors, cables, chains, rigging, tackle, capstans, fittings, tools, pumps and
pumping equipment, gear, apparel, furniture, equipment, spare parts, supplies,
accessions, accessories or any other appurtenances of the Vessel that are no
longer useful, necessary, profitable or advantageous in the operation of the
Vessel, by first or simultaneously replacing the same with new engines, boilers,
machinery, covers, masts, bowspirits, boats, spars, anchors, cables, chains,
rigging, tackle, capstans, fittings, tools, pumps and pumping equipment, gear,
apparel, furniture, equipment, spare parts, supplies, accessions, accessories or
other appurtenances of not less than equal value at the time of replacement,
which shall forthwith become subject to the lien of this mortgage as a preferred
ship mortgage thereon unless otherwise permitted by the Loan Agreement.

                                  ARTICLE IV
                                 MISCELLANEOUS

require any marshalling of assets.

Mortgagor and the Mortgagee and their respective successors and assigns;

provided, however, that nothing in this Section shall be deemed to permit any

     4.5  No Waiver.  No provision of this Mortgage or any other document and
          ---------
none of the actions or omissions to act by the Mortgagee contemplated thereby

preferred status of this Mortgage or of any of the benefits, privileges or
provisions given by Chapter 313.
