Completely and clearly Ken, thanks a lot! Very interesting! Is there any drywall manufacturing plants in Canada?

Thanks a lot, it is always a pleasure to heard from you!

Hi Robert: On both Port and Starboard sides there are doors in the stern overhang, when opened,a product discharge conveyor extends to facilitate cargo discharge.The ship was purpose built for National Gypsum's transport of gypsum from Halifax to their drywall manufacturing plants on the U.S. East Coast. The gypsum deposit here (N.E. of Halifax) is the largest gypsum deposit in N,America. Hope this answers your query. All best wishes,Ken :-)

Hi Ken, very unusual stern! Never seen one like that around here; is there a particular purpose of that kind of stern?

Thanks to share,Robert08 :lol:
