Vessel History

Rebuilds Rebuilt and lengthened by Davie Shipbuilding, Ltd., Lauzon, P.Q., in winter, 1977-1978 (716 x 76 x 36; 18531 gross - 12617 registered).
History Began Great Lakes service on April 18, 1979. A worker's torch started a fire which severely damaged the navigation bridge and the two decks below it. The incident occurred on February 26, 1981, while the vessel was in winter lay-up at Sarnia, Ontario. Lost power and ran aground in the Welland Canal near St. Catharines, Ontario, on June 15, 1997. Was pulled free and towed in for repairs. Became wedged against the Norfolk Southern railroad bridge over the Maumee River in Toledo, OH, on June 23, 2000. Tugs pulled the vessel free and only superficial damage was sustained. Collided with the Snell Lock in the St. Lawrence Seaway on March 30, 2002, causing a 2' (0.61m) tear at her bow 8' (2.44m) above the waterline. Repairs were completed at Port Colborne, ON. On June 10, 2002, the vessel grounded 1/4 mile west of the St. Louis Bridge in the Beauharnois Canal (in the St. Lawrence Seaway) in an attempt to hold back due to a temporary bridge malfunction. On June 26, 2002, the CEDARGLEN grounded on a shoal near Whiskey Island in the St. Lawrence River near King's Point, NY. The vessel had reported electrical problems before the grounding. Had part of starboard wing bridge removed in 2005 in order to fit under the iron ore chutes at Marquette, MI.
Disposition Towed from Montreal Harbor by tug V.B. HISPANIA, bound for Aliaga, Turkey, for scrapping.
