    Now that is one ugly ship!

  • lol! I saw it coming a long way off and waited until I had the best viewpoint, mostly because I couldn’t figure out what it was. But as soon as I got a good look, I pegged it for a car carrier. We had the first Autoport open up in Eastern Passage, outside Dartmouth, back in the 70’s, so we were used to seeing a lot of these big boxy ships. Sort of a self-propelled barge!

    George don’t you just love it when these big guys come around a land point and seem to take up the whole Strait? Great capture.

  • Hi Terrill, yes, I wish I was close enough to the Strait to see them all, but I manage to catch some of them!
