The Federal Asahi Passes Milliken State Park

I thought that I was going to catch two ships tonight but it turns out that the Calumet needed to get fuel first.  I didn't feel like sticking around to catch her, so it was one ship.
 And that ship was the Federal Asahi which is not related to the beer.  It is however named after the river in Japan. 
 She was built in 2000 and is 656 feet long.  She can carry 36,000 tons of cargo which is lots of beer.
 According to AIS, she is on her way to Montreal.  I presume that she is carrying grain but I'm not sure.
 And the beam shot.
Since there wasn't another ship tonight...this was my last shot.
