Captain Mike Austin brought the Canadian Olympic and her crew of 27 into port on January 14, 2004 to load coal at Midwest Energy. They took this cargo to Ontario Power Generation before going to Ashtabula to load more coal for Nanticoke. They carry mostly coal with an occasional cargo of salt. About twice a year, they go out the St. Lawrence Seaway to New Brunswick to pick up a cargo of gypsum for Montreal, a substance used in making wall board. Captain Austin told me he likes the break in the routine but the deck hands are never too happy since gypsum is not a nice cargo to deal with. It is very sticky at the least. Front end loaders need to be lowered into the ships one hold to break up the cargo before it can be discharged using the self unloader. They need the help of local stevedores for this job.
