U-Turn in the St. Clair - Poetry in Motion - ShipspottingsteemCreated with Sketch.

in OCD3 months ago

When Algoma Hansa came out of lay-up yesterday, she was facing the wrong direction in Sarnia, Ontario. It was quite amazing to watch her do a very tight U-turn almost within her own length. Read more about her on Boatnerd's site.

Algoma Hansa is a 472-foot-long tanker operated by Algoma Central Corporation since 2006. She stayed in Sarnia over the winter and looked very smart today as she got underway to begin the 2021 shipping season with a voyage to Nanticoke. She is riding high and empty today.










All ready for her downbound journey! Fair sailing to all working with this ship this season!
Kudos to the person behind the camera for allowing all the viewers to watch this movement.

Today's images are from:
Boatnerd - Port Huron, Michigan
The sharing of the pictures/cameras is encouraged for the education and enjoyment of all. Please take a look at these cameras on YouTube.

Note: Boatnerd also hosts shipping news, huge amounts of data about almost any "laker" and even many of the "saltie" visitors - and even a book called "Know Your Ships". I would encourage supporting his great work, especially as he has plans to add more cameras in 2021.

If you want to be tagged in future shipspotting posts, please let me know and I'll add you to this list.

This category is for when the camera operator finds something else fun to focus on, like the peregrines around Port Huron or the beautiful sunrise over Lake Superior as viewed from the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge.
