Photo Details
Photographer:Magogman [View profile]Title:BLUEBILLAdded:Oct 11, 2007
Photo Category: Bulkers built 2001-2010
The green hulled Bluebill has been relieved of its cargo while docked at the Toledo, Ohio Port Authority complex on the Maumee River, a tributary to Lake Erie. Late afternoon, August 14, 2007. The paint on the Bluebill's hull is not what I would expect on a ship built in 2004.
Chartered by Canadian Forest Products, Ltd. which names most of its charters after ducks. Having received one of my college degrees from a large state university that has a duck as its mascot/symbol (the Oregon Ducks), I find CanForNav's practice of naming ships quite acceptable. The Bluebill is owned by Navarone SA Marine Enterprises of Limassol, Cyprus.

Thanks Derek! It is in a hard to photograph area on both sides of the river. Time to invest in a boat or scuba gear! Several ships this summer are bringing to Toledo large amounts of good sized pipe.
Must be a large pipeline project somewhere -- the pipe is being loaded on flatcars for delivery by rail somewhere. It is also a "coal to Newcastle" type of thing.

Great shot, just missed this one myself in the middle of the North Sea recently! Not quick enough off the mark!
