Excellant Picture.

But I'm intrigued as to what the Six Bars are on her side.

Anodes.......but above water line Hmmm

Early version of Tug Pushing points..perhaps.

Any other thoughts welcome.

I was going to say, she's got them as well but its the same ship..... :oops: :oops:

Bit more...

Irish Shipping, Limerick.
8,269 Gross. 4,627 Net. 10,650 Dwt.
5 Cyl 2 S.C.S.A Doxford by Hawthorn Leslie (Engineers) Ltd., Newcastle upon Tyne.
15 knots.

Now did the engine go to the ship or did the ship come to the engine?

There is another picture of her by Alex Duncan which does not show the so called 'Bars' so I'm thinking they may in fact be Anodes.

I would say the bars on her side located down the ends of her parallel body are to avoid damage should she land alongside at a slight angle when transiting locks. In one photo she doesn't have them so a retrofit, perhaps for St Lawrence Seaway transits.

Good thinking, that would certainly make sense. Thanks for your thoughts.
