My next ship was the tug Samuel de Champlain and barge Innovation owed by the LaFarge North America Company.
This is the Laurentien going upbound and the Innovation coming downbound.
The Innovation as it was coming closer.
An almost straight on shot. I really do not like these ships because the tugs are ugly. But I guess it keeps ships on the lakes.
The ship as it is heading away.
It has a cargo capacity of 14,000 tons and the tug has 7,200 horsepower. I believe they are permanently mated.
