Let’s call this Fednav’s B-class . . .

Federal Biscay is one of six in that class, all built in 2015 by Oshima.

 

She’s upbound to load, possibly grain for export.  To get a sense of her recent itineraries, click here and scroll.

As a non-US/Canadian vessel, she needs to carry a pilot the whole distance within the Seaway . . . I mean from eastern edge of Quebecois water to whatever her destination and the return.

 

On Lake Erie, she crossed Federal Bering,

a similar bulker.  To see her recent port stops, click here.

 

Bering is down bound, and

 

has to wait for traffic to clear through lock W8 before proceeding.

 

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who wants to remind you of the NYS Canal Conference happening on Staten Island next week.  I will show Graves of Arthur Kill and speak on a panel about the hidden places of the sixth boro.
