Federal Saguenay inner workings

This is a view down the deck of the Federal Saguenay when it was in port last year loading durum wheat. It has been at anchor most of the weekend and probably came in to load grain very early this morning. In the picture, there are 2 spouts from the grain terminal hanging from the left over the ship’s cargo holds, pouring grain into the cargo hold. The big rectangular thing with the half circle on it is a hatch cover, folded up to allow the grain to go into the hold. In transit, the hatch covers are down and the deck flat.
