 Mississagi  (Bulk Carrier > Self Discharging Bulk Carrier)
6 hours ago by Timsen

Bulkcarrier withstood grounding without damage
When the "Mississagi" grounded near Drummond Island she was outside the marked channel, according to Coast Guard investigators. The downbound "Mississagi" should have passed a shoal-marker buoy on its starboard side, but instead passed the buoy on its port side. The buoy marks a four-foot shoal outside the approximately 30-foot shipping channel. The ship's bow grounded on what was determined to be a mostly clay bottom. The Coast Guard was still trying to determine why the freighter was outside the shipping lanes when it grounded in Potagannissing Bay about four miles east of De Tour Village about 1 a.m. on Apr 22. The ship was only refloated after offloading about 2,000 of its 17,000 tons of stone cargo onto a barge on Apr 25. The ship suffered a surprising lack of physical damage during the grounding, which investigators determined did not cause any fuel, ballast water or other contaminants to leak into the surrounding water. Divers didn't note any hull breaches. The ship made for its original destination of Bruce Mines before heading to Chicago after the five-hour lightering operation was carried out under Coast Guard supervision. Depending on the investigation results, the ship's owner L ower Lakes Towing of Port Dover, Ontario, could face a fine between $5,000 and $25,000. Because the grounding happened outside the St. Marys River shipping channel, there was no vessel traffic disruption.
