CSL ATLANTIC ERIE

While taking the scenic route  to Montreal today, we happened to see CSL ATLANTIC ERIE manoeuvre her way past a variety of markers and buoys near Morrisburg heading upbound to the St. Lawrence Seaway's, Iroquois lock. Originally launched at the RT. HON. PAUL MARTIN in 1984, this versatile 736' Great Lakes and ocean class self-unloading bulk carrier has carried grain, coal, iron ore, gypsum, and stone products to and from ports along the Great Lakes, Atlantic Canada, southern US, the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, Spain, Germany, Holland and more. She even carried and unloaded magnetite ore to ballast an Hibernia Oil Platform off the Grand Banks. CSL ATLANTIC ERIE also makes a great pair of photos on a hot day in July.
