-IMO#7407324- the very unique Seaway Size car carrier seem unloading VW's at Davisville,RI,3-10-06. This is the smallest car carrier and only the second one that I know of that can fit through the St. Lawrence Seaway locks other then Dyvi Kattegat. I think this might be a personal favorite of mine.

Great shot Matt. Nice looking car-carrier. I wish she'd come into the lakes, though.

The bridge doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the ship. Not only the difference in color, but also the square shape of the vessel and the traditional shaped bridge look very different.
Great pic though.
Nice cars she brought to your area (had one for 2 years :lol: )

Further information about Trigger. She was launched back in the mid- seventies,and was planned to be named Dyvi Atlantic(?) along with sisters: Høegh Target(ex. Dyvi Adriatic) and Dyvi Kattegat(?).The Target and Trigger (I have worked on both of them)was ordered by the Dyvi company but was sold due to financial calamities( so the word says).
This vessel is kind of outdated nowadays. It has a capacity of slightly above 3000 "normal" cars. It´s got 12 car decks, many of them moveable, but still lacks flexibility/ versatility as opposed to modern autoliners. The capacity of carrying heavy load/ large rolling equipment is limited. Even modern Suv´s propose a problem, since they are higher than the average car 20- 30 years ago.

Nice shot Matt, her stern looks almost like a cruise ship.
