Buffalo leaves, CSL Laurentien arrives

This was my first time seeing both of these vessels. The CSL Laurentien was built in 1977 and is 739’10′” feet long. She had been going between 3-7 knots over the course of an hour, waiting for the Buffalo to finish up the final touches of her load of pellets. The Buffalo was built in 1978 and is 634’10″. She can carry 24,300 tons of cargo. DSCN3185 DSCN3186 DSCN3208 DSCN3245 DSCN3264 DSCN3270 DSCN3271 DSCN3311 DSCN3371 DSCN3411
