EMPIRE STATE - IMO 5264510

|EMPIRE STATE sailing by the Verchères dock on December 24, 1989. Her conversion had yet to be completed as she left Sturgeon Bay in a hurry because of early winter freeze up in the Seaway and a Canadian Coast Guard strike which kept icebreakers tied up at ports on the St.Lawrence River thus leaving icebound ships in the Seaway on their own.

It's also interesting to see which modifications had yet to be made; such as the hydraulic crane aft at No. 6 hatch (installed in 1990-91) and ladders leading up to her aft chartroom from the outside (aft of the bridge, the three large windows you see) in order to reduce cadet foot traffic through the bridge, outside the Master's stateroom and through the interior officer's ladderwell. |

Marc These are truly sensational photographs I am delighted that we got you to post them. Perhaps the Captain was demonstrating destroyer manouveres and had given the order to make smoke, in any case the entire effect is quite outstanding. Good scan - these slides still come up pretty well. |
