The heavy lift ship Tramper is due Sunday to load a pair of packaged boilers. Since it will be docking at pier 24, an almost impossible place to get a photo in these days of high security, I am posting a file photo instead.
On a previous visit February 13, 2003 the ship arrived very heavily iced up. When it docked on February 14, there was so much ice that the ship's own crew could not remove it and a shore gang was hired. They brought in steam generators to free up the hatches and loading gear.
The ship unloaded three Mammoet cranes for Fort McMurray on that trip, and sailed again February 17.
