20100811_3444The Tim S. Dool was launched October 15, 1967 as the Senneville for the Mohawk Navigation Co. of Montreal and was the flagship for the fleet.  Algoma Central bought her in 1994 and renamed her Algoville. She was renamed by Algoma to the Tim S. Dool in 2009 after Dool retired from his position as President and CEO of the company. She has carried a wide variety of cargos over the years. One hold was converted to a tank so that canola oil would be carried. She has 18 hatches that open into 6 cargo holds below deck. She is powered by two diesel engines that can generate 9,600hp providing a top speed of 16 mph.   Picture above taken Wednesday, August 11, 2010.
