The self-unloading bulk freighter Algowood will be here today for the 6th time this season, again loading about 30,000 tons of coal for Ontario Power Generation in Nanticoke. Built in 1981 by Collingwood Shipyards at Collingwood, Ontario, it was named in honor of that town, the shipyard there, and the owner of the boat, Algoma Central.

Algowood backwards exit

We do not often see a boat about to go under the Lift Bridge while the bridge is still on the way up. Happily, the picture above of the Algowood, taken on January 2, 2002, is not an example of that. The Algowood is departing Duluth going backward. It has just cleared the bridge as it moves out the Duluth ship canal. It turned around just beyond the piers and disappeared over the horizon, facing east.

Algowood brings salt, takes coal

The Algowood was here ten times last year. Each time she loaded coal, as she will today. On two of those trips, she discharged salt first. On one, she discharged a cargo of stone before she loaded coal.
