wow great pic of one of my favorite lakes visiting vessels. for some reason her, kolguev and goldeneye remind me of the post seaway size 'handy max' vessels. looks like she was hauling cement earlier

Saw the Spar Ruby last year in the St. Lawrence a couple of times. Looks like she has lost a lot of paint on her hull since last summer. Spotted her sister ships the Jade and the Opal last summer also. Waiting for the Spar Garnet to get the four of a kind. It's fun to see other shots of the ships that we see on the River. Thanks.
