Petka is shown in this photograph aground at Erie on August 31, 1991. In this photograph, the Durocher tug Champion can be seen on the left, with the Durocher tug Meghan Beth on the right. The ship, trying to turn to dock at the Codan Corp. dock (now the Mounfort Terminal), strayed too far north of the channel and went aground.
