While taking the scenic route to Montreal today, we happened to see Canada Steamship Lines' ATLANTIC ERIE manoeuvre her way past a variety of markers and buoys near Mariatown heading upbound to the St. Lawrence Seaway's, Iroquois Lock. Originally launched as the HON. PAUL MARTIN in 1984, this versatile 736.5' 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.  ATLANTIC ERIE also makes a great pair of photos on a hot day in July.
