Meanwhile, when Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario was running low on fuel oil last winter, who came to the rescue? What is the ALGOCANADA, Alex? Correct Answer! Too bad it wasn't a Daily Double, eh. c);-b
Yup, while escorted by USCGC KATMAI BAY, it took eight days for the ALGOCANADA to transit the ice clogged St. Mary's River, a journey that in normal conditions would have been completed in about 12 hours. Twice the escort had to be stopped to allow the KATMAI BAY (http://carlzboats.blogspot.ca/2014/02/ice-breaking-tug-uscgc-katmai-bay-wtgb_6.html), to return to her homeport in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan to refuel. Way to al-GO CANADA!! (Sorry) And Thank You USCGC KATMAI BAY!! The much needed cargo could not have arrived without your assistance.
