I’m posting from Montreal, the M in the series title MB.  So I’ve  some catching-up to do.

Let’s start in a waterway where deckhands have an additional task, one involving hand signals.

I commend the deckhands for their polite signals given the crowding.

All proceeds with minimal horn blasts and absence of injury.

 

Some hand signaling has to be repeated though. Have you guessed the town, the waterway?

It’s Cleveland of course with its much-loved Cuyahoga.

Port Colborne is the location of MRC, the clean-up business, and right now they’ve a few years–my guess–of projects.

JW Cooper goes in and out several times a day.

But what I wanted to watch was the traffic, up and down bound, like Algoma Buffalo.  The previous two times —here and here–I’d seen this vessel predated her sale to Algoma.

Port Colborne is very quiet on a rainy early fall Sunday,

so quiet I could hear the engine room crew commenting about the town’s stillness,

although I’m guessing they spoke louder than otherwise because they had on ear protection.

Algoma Buffalo headed to a turn-off on the Welland and self-unloaded some of her cargo.  The 24,300-ton-capacity vessel started her cargo-carrying life late in 1978, i.e., just over 40 years ago.
