Title: Ship vs Truck
Post by: charlie on January 27, 2019, 05:59:33 AM
Saw this on the TUGSTER blog yesterday & thought it was a pretty cool shot showing the scale of both ship & truck. :o  Algoma Hansa is the tanker at a dock in Sarnia ON.....anyone recognize the company the Volvo belongs to? ???

It's a stunning photo. The truck looks like a small toy. I have absolutely no idea of the carrier involved but with the kind of
small logo on the truck door I would guess for Trimac ??? ??? ???

I can't tell either.

The ship looks so big in perspective but they look small compared to the other lakers plying the Great Lakes.

 You're right about perspective....the thousand footers make this one look small. Could it be a George Hall unit? ???

I don't get the 1000 footers down here on Lake Ontario - the Welland Canal locks are 730 feet.
Probably not Geo.A Hall but I would guess at Harold Marcus.

Sarnia is in their territory.

That was quite cool to look at

Excellent shot, wonder why it is down at the rear? Or is it just the zoom in that makes it look that way?

I was going to guess Harold Marcus too.

I wouldn't have a guess as to the carrier either, but that's a hell of a perspective. Thanks for sharing Charlie.

Lodge Members -

Search on the 'net has the answers. MV ALGOMA HANSA classed as a Chemical/ Oil Tanker. We might
guess the photo in lead shot here done with a telephoto camera? It exaggerates the vessel down hard
by the stern. That is? The cargo holds empty, which has the vessel light on the bow (for'd). Many
Photos in 'net searches (by vessel name). F'rinstance, see:

Probably a ballasting issue while unloading/loading. Will be corrected before the ship sails.
