My first and only Laker, I was Captain on her for 7 months between 2002 to 2003, while she was the Mackenzie. We made 3 voyages to the lakes and the final one was to Montreal where we handed over the ship to CSL at the lay up berth. I thoroughly enjoyed my time aboard.

Hi Capt. By any chance do you remember the names of the Pilots you had aboard during your visits to the Welland Canal..? I have photos of this ship under the name MACKENZIE which I'll be sure to post on the site very shortly..
