To update on an earlier post that I had sent into boatnerd today on the Algoma Niagara, as of 11 A.M. on November 23rd they are off of Port Austin at the tip of the thumb of Michigan and not sure if they could be st anchor or not? They were diwnbound in Lake Huron during the morning hours earlier but have now turned and are off of Port Austin as I type this now. Hope all of this information helps out.



That was probably a course to stay in the lee of the Michigan shoreline and avoid west winds.

According to the Hamilton website, they're due Nov. 24 at 10pm. Export cargo is ballast. Once they arrive their next port will be updated.

Thanks everyone for your responses to my questions on the cargo the Algoma Niagara loaded in Thunder Bay. So if it is a grain cargo this would make sense and I fully understand that. Since she is due to arrive on November 25th at 0100, I don't know how long it would take them to unload that cargo? I assume it will take at least 2 days to unload at the best? Would like to still see her just one time for this year and next week so far at least, I have 3 days and opps to see her any day heading back up from Monday-Wednesday. I can't make it out next Thursday as I have an appointment and next Friday so long as the weather is good, I could make it up to see her at that point! Any further information along with schedules, times and ETAs are very much appreciated. Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving as well!

Apparently their problems must not be too bad as they departed from Thunder Bay on November 21st around 10:30 p.m. and are enroute to Hamilton to unload where they are due on November 25th at 0100 to unload. Does anyone know what cargo they are taking to Hamilton? Thought they were going to load a grain cargo for the Seaway unless this is a grain cargo for Hamilton? Did they get an orders change then to load possibly coal instead of grain in Thunder Bay? I can see if this is coal going to Hamilton from Thunder Bay. Sorry to be asking all these questions just curious is all. Any information is appreciated. Thanks so very much in advance for any type of info that you have.


Based on today's Port Report, it's a grain cargo for Hamilton.

In a day or so the Hamilton Port website will show their anticipated arrival with the type of cargo. Hamilton does receive grain cargoes from TB. Stay tuned..

Guest, will they get some of their problems and issues fixed then as they get into Thunder Bay? If I'm not mistaken, I believe they were headed to Thunder Bay to load wheat for a St. Lawrence River port. Not sure if that is still the plan or if anything has changed since then?
