Catching the Lake Ontario

I'm pretty sure that this next ship has appeared on this blog.  Even if it was in one of the brief "ships on the river" type posts.
 At any rate, the Lake Ontario is a salty that belongs to a company called Sunship Schiffahrtskontor KG out of Emden, Germany.
 She was built in 2004 and started life as the Federal Manitou until 2011 when she was acquired by her new company.
 She has a 77 foot beam which means that she can fit into the Welland Canal (obviously since she's here).
 She is 606 feet long and can carry 27,000 tons of cargo.
 Currently she is on her way to Gibraltar.  She had an intermediate stop in Montreal.
 I'm not sure if Gibraltar is an intermediate stop.  Currently she is east of Maine and somewhere in the Atlantic.
Based on AIS, she should be in Gibraltar a week from Monday.
