And Some Just Rust Away
I was kind of surprised to see the next ship. I didn't really see her on AIS until I was up in St. Clair. Because she's one of the ships whose days are numbered, I needed pictures of her.
I keep hearing rumors that the Algoway is pretty much on her last legs as a vessel. It is only a matter of time before her replacement is built.
I think I remember a couple of years ago when they painted her bow and looking at her that seems like forever.
She's got rust everywhere it seems. But I guess I can understand why. If her days are numbered, why bother wasting paint on her. As long as it isn't affecting anything else.
But I kind of like the rust, it gives her character.
Not that she doesn't already have alot of character.
A shot of her stern.
And she moves on. I was hoping to catch her as she passed Port Huron, but she ended up stopping short of there. It wasn't until after dark that she moved on.
