The Esta Desgagnes Passes By

It's not often that I get to see a ship that I haven't seen before.  Tonight was one of those cases.
 As we were about to leave the park, my friend caught a glimpse of this ship just behind some of the ships.  Fortunately, I was able to get my camera ready quickly enough.
 This ship is the Esta Desgagnes, she is chartered to Petro-Nav which is a subsidiary of Groupe Desgagnes.  Presumably, she carries petroleum products on the Lakes.
 She was built in 1992 at the MTW Shipyard in Wismar, Germany.  She is 405 feet long and can carry about 10,500 tons of cargo.
She heads off to Lake St. Clair.  She was heading up to Sarnia, I believe.
