My first ship was the Canadian Olympic. She was heading downbound on the Detroit River.
The Canadian Olympic was constructed by the Port Weller Dry Docks of St. Catherines Ontario for the Upper Lakes Group in 1976. She was named in honor of the Olympic games held in Montreal.
She is powered by two 5,000 horsepower diesel engines and is capable of a speed of 13 knots.
She is 730 feet long and can carry up to 35,000 tons of cargo.
