The Virginiaborg Passes Algonac

I saw that the Roger Blough would be coming down this way, so I decided to head up to Algonac State Park in order to catch her.  As I arrived at the park, I saw this ship making her way past.
 The ship in question is the Virginiaborg, she is one of a number of ships owned by Wagenborg out of the Netherlands.
 I didn't have much of a chance to get pictures of her.  She is 433 feet long and has a cargo capacity of almost 10,000 tons.  I think she is heading up to Duluth to likely pick up grain.

A shot of her lifeboat.
