From left to right, the remorqueurs below in the port of Ogdensburg, New York, carry the names Lac Manitoba and Ecosse, seasoning exotique from north of the border. Lac Manitoba, built in Trenton, Ontario in 1944, hails from Montreal. Ecosse, from Wheatley, Ontario 1979, hails from Hamilton. Thanks to boatnerd, here are close-ups of Ecosse and Ecosse again. Thanks to shipspotting, here’s Lac Manitoba.

Unlike convenient ports of registry carried on the sterns of most cargo vessels in the sixth boro, here’s a refreshing name, aka the Soo.

I’ll post more on this salty soon.

Atlantic Huron arrives at Eisenhower Lock from Snell Lock. Cargo is iron ore from Labrador and loaded at Sept-Isles. Anyone know why the hatch covers are kept wet?

LOA is 736.’ Lock chamber is 740′ by 78.’ Breadth of vessel is 77.’ Notice the two crewmen standing by.  I heard no scraping along  the sides.

Crewman in yellow helmet also stands by just forward of the house. I’m intrigued by the enormity of the hydraulic ram that raises the self-unloader.

Seven minutes adds 42′ to the level of water in the lock chamber.

Atlantic Huron exits the lock upbound, maybe for Hamilton.

Next stop–Iroquois Lock. Play with this amazing interactive Seaway map.

Downbound Algoport, shown two days ago, approaches the Eisenhower Lock.

Seven hours later Atlantic Huron passes port of Ogdensburg. Ready for a most unexpected connection: click on Atlantic Huron and then click again on “related links.” Click on “CSL International” and then on “our fleet.” Alice Oldendorff is there, a cousin along with others like Ambassor, Barkald, and Bauta . . . all of whom have appeared on this blog.
