Im sure they would just set up the new ship to haul cement, I don't think they care about how hard it would be on the new build anyone in a position too worry about it will be long retired by the time problems would come up. I wonder what the lifespan of these new ships is supposed to be?

A Canadian Jones act would not save our boats. Our boats are just worn out and would need to be replaced regardless.

I'm betting it will be either the Algorail or Algoway. If I am correct in what I've heard and read before, the Algorail and Algoway will end up being replaced by new 650s being built in Croatia one of which is the new Algoma Innovator at least I thought that is what I read and also heard from Algoma? I agree as the new Algoma Niagara at 740 feet in length will probably replace one of their older 730s. Just a little bit off subject but, when and if the Jackman is scrapped then what will happen as far as Algoma's cement hauling contract to St. Marys in Detroit? Will one of their newer ships get this contract and continue to haul cement or will another fleet possibly take it over? I'm just curious is all as to what Algoma plans on doing someday with that if they get rid of the Jackman someday as right now, she is their only vessel loading cement at Bowmanville and going to Detroit other than the tug Sea Eagle II of St. Marys Cement in Canada.

I would guess the Capt. Henry Jackman given the fate of the John B. Aird and Peter R. Cresswell.

They couldn't come up with a better name why not just take all CSL names and just put Algoma in front of it.
