On a recent stroll down to the waterfront I saw a ship looming up above everything else. It looked monstrously big. Definitely wanted to check it out. A few months back there was a laker, the Maritime Trader docked by Pier 8. The ship that was there now, the Algoma Guardian had to be twice the size of that one, if not larger.
That warehouse is two or three stories high.
That anchor is at least 2 meters long.
More than 20 meters wide. That propeller is wider than most cars are long.
That superstructure is at least six stories above the deck.
That bow anchor is at least twice as big as the stern anchor.
More than 200 meters long.
The HMCS Haida could completely disappear in its hold.
