Whatever the name...This is a beautiful capture, marc!
Azoreanboy: Your series from the rescue/ dismantling of this proud ship is very exciting, and I thank you for posting.
Greetings to both of you.

Here she is shown as CANMAR VALOUR. She ran as CP VALOUR only for a few months in the latter half of 2005 before her mishap.
You can see a couple of photos of her as CP VALOUR on this site. I took them at Verchères on August 12, 2005, the only time I ever saw her in good light as a CP named ship. I wanted to photograph her with the new CP funnel logo but this opportunity never occured because of her unexpected demise.
