Vessel History

History As ALGOBAY: Grounded while downbound on December 2, 1979, at Chrossover Island in American waters near Oak Point when her steering system failed. She laid across the channel blocking the Seaway until the next morning when a USCG tug pushed her out of the channel. The tugs ROBINSON BAY, HELEN MCALLISTER and SALVAGE MONARCH were dispatched to ALGOBAY's assistance. She was freed on December 4. After repairs to her steering system were completed, she proceeded on her way. There was no apparent damage from the grounding. Collided head on with the MONTREALAIS while upbound on the St. Clair River just below Port Huron in dense fog on June 25, 1980. She sustained an estimated $500,000 damage but no casualties. She was repaired at Herb Fraser and Associates of Port Colborne, Ontario.
Reported aground on the South Side of the Channel at St. Nicolas, St. Lawrence River, on October 2, 1981. No damage reported.
Collided with the MONTREALAIS in the fog shrouded St. Clair River, June 25, 1980. February decision of Justice Paul Rouleau ruled the ALGOBAY at fault and 75% responsible for the $1,586,458 damage to the MONTREALAIS ($1,185,843.00).
