Let’s start with one that I can’t identify, other than by its name . . . Charlie E, I believe.  I took this photo in Port Colborne.

I was wrong when I thought McKeil’s Sharon M I was an ex-Candies tug like Na Hoku or Greenland Sea.  It turns out she was built in Japan.

I can’t ever remember seeing a heaping load of coal like this . . .

Petite Forte was docked also along the Welland Canal with barge St. Mary’s Cement.

I’ll put up a pilot boat post soon.  Meanwhile, can you identify this pilot boat?

Jaclyn is a 41′ tug built in 1967.

Joncaire, it turns out, is an important name in Niagara history.

ft7

Eagle is a 57′ tugboat built in 1943 and operating out of Cleveland. Here she heads for the outer harbor.

Twenty four hours does include more darkness now than light, so here were:  Algoma Transport at the dock in Port Colborne, Algoma Hansa, Algoeast, Cedarglen, Petite Forte, Peter B. Cresswell, Fortunagracht, and  . . . now northbound, Algoma Transport.  And there’s no better place to watch all night long than from the Inn at Lock 7.
