I noticed that Algoma took the one-off the Agoma Compass.

Rule 5-Look-out Every vessel shall at all times maintain a proper look-out by sight and hearing as well as by all available means appropriate in the prevailing circumstances and conditions so as to make a full appraisal of the situation and of the risk of collision.

Some protection from the elements for the foreword lookout. American boats will have them, Canadian boats don’t require foreword lookouts in the rivers. Only inclement weather would demand additional lookouts.



Are forward lookouts on US ships in the rivers an insurance requirement or just standard business practice in the industry? As Canadian ships apparently do not require forward lookouts in the rivers I would assume that there are no USCG regulations requiring these for any ships operating in US waterways.

A few years ago noticed a small building on the bow of the aft enders. I always thought it was control housing but im not sure. I would also like to know what its real name is.
