The Algoma Strongfield will be in Hamilton on the 6th of June. She will have a short lay-up of one week to remove the "Great Walls of China" the 6 foot walls that was added to her deck for the crossing.

Thanks everyone for helping me out on the Algoma Strongfield as I have been tracking her every move so far through the Seaway on her first trip to Hamilton. Can't wait to see and photograph her for myself and hoping beyond hope that she makes a daylight transit up the St. Clair River for this Saturday! Can't go out to the river for Friday but, if she will be up this Saturday then I will be there just as long as it doesn't rain I hope. 3 Long and 2 Short to the crew and captain of the Algoma Strongfield and have a good and safe first trip and journey. Welcome home as well and a job well done!

Anyone know or hear where they are headed to after they load in Pointe Noire? I assume at some point possibly that they may go to Hamilton and unload but, not sure if this load from Pointe Noire is headed there or not? There is nothing mentioned so far on the Port of Hamilton's website as far as her arriving there anytime soon to unload any ore cargoes. Any information is appreciated. Thank You.

Algoma Strongfield's Canadian registration popped up this morning while I was looking at the Transport Canada web site. This was about Eastern Time.
So the ship is now Canadian - presumably while tied up in Pointe-Noire. This means a Canadian crew must be there to take over the ship.

It took, literally, an Act of Congress in 1998 to get the Prince Nova, now the Susan Anne, on Long Island Sound, through a concerted effort by the Connecticut state government and its congressional contingent. As I recall the state wanted improved ferry service to New York but no existing American ferries were available or suitable and the cost to build was prohibitive, or so was the argument. The only stipulation was that either three times the vessel's purchase price or $4.5 million, whichever was greater, had to be spent in an American shipyard to rebuild the vessel. The Wronowski family owns Cross Sound Ferry and Thames Shipbuilding, the yard that did that work. The Wronowski family was very grateful!

As I understand it, nothing built offshore can be registered in the US. The vessel must be US-built, period. It's different in Canada where new boats are being built offshore, i.e. Algoma Equinox, Baie St. Paul, etc. In all probably, if the Strongfield is currently foreign-crewed, I think the physical and legal changeover will place upon arrival in Canada.


U.S. vessels can be built offshore and flagged here, however, that only makes them eligible to operate in the international trade as they are not Jones Act compliant.

I would almost have to believe that the official "handing off of the vessel from a foreign crew to a Canadian crew and to Algoma will probably take place in Montreal." Not sure how it works as far as in Canada but at least with the Jones Act if I am understanding it the right way, since it is foreign registered they could not load then in Canada and then go to another Canada port and unload correct? Like I said earlier, not sure how it works in Canada but at least with the Jones Act I think that is how it works for U.S. vessels as far as I know. Another reason I think that change of registry and crew will be in Montreal is so that the deck stiffeners or whatever those things are called, probably will be removed and taken off.

Is there still a foreign crew on board?
If so wonder when they will hand off to a Algoma crew?
Just curious. Thanks
