And the Thunder Bay

I had a pretty busy day Saturday.
 Next up is one of the reasons why ships like the Cedarglen are going to the scrap yard.  The Thunder Bay is one of the newish Chinese build ships that are replacing the older ships in the Canadian Fleet.  If I remember correctly, she was the first of these for the Canada Steamship Lines and was built in 2013.
 She is headed to Belledune which is on the outside of the St. Lawrence Seaway.  One of the reasons why the Canadian ships don't last as long as the American ships is because they sometimes see the salt of the ocean.
 Some people don't like the Chinese builds, but I think they are pretty nice looking boats.
 The head shot.
 The almost beam shot.
 Probably my favorite of the day.
and one more before she moves on.
