Pineglen is former Paterson

pineglen211017-131
The Canadian flagged Pineglen will be here today for the 3rd time this season, about the average number of trips for the boat, although it was not here at all last year. It visited many times when it sailed as the Paterson. When the owner, Paterson & Sons of Thunder Bay, went out of the shipping business in 2002, it was sold to Canada Steamship Lines and renamed. Above is a picture of the boat taken in October, 2001 when it was still the Paterson.

Pineglen to load grain

A lot of people spent a lot of time at the ship canal on Sunday waiting and watching but it wasn’t until 6 pm that a big boat came under the Lift Bridge in the light of day. The Charles M. Beeghly departed at 4:45 am. It was the Canadian flagged Pineglen (above), a boat that arrived on Friday evening to load grain. Not long after, the CSL Laurentien arrived to load coal for Belledune, New Brunswick, a trip that will take the boat into the Atlantic Ocean. It will probably leave here before the sun rises.
