Close-up bow view of Algoma Tankers' newest vessel, ALGOSEA, upbound in the Welland Canal above Lock 1 on her maiden Canal voyage, 12:19 p.m. 1 August 2005.

The ALGOSEA was recently purchased by Algoma Tankers from Borg Tankers, Ltd, for $42 million Canadian. Measuring 144 meters long and 23 meters wide, the tanker is the former AGGERSBORG (IMO 9127198) built at Alabama Shipyards at Mobile, Alabama, USA.

On this upbound voyage, I was told by a crewmember that the vessel was carrying 10,000 MT of gasoline loaded at the Strait of Canso (?) to Nanticoke.
