1/25 - Historical Perspective - Dick Wicklund
The sale of the Algoma tanker, Algonova for service off the Lakes this month and its renaming as Pacifico Trader, closes a long career on the Lakes. This 400-foot vessel was built in 1969 as the Texaco Chief (2), which was originally designed for Yankcanuck Steamships as a larger version of the currant Yankcanuck (2), but the order was not placed and Texaco took over the proposed ship. It would be launched as a tanker. It was sold to to Socanav in 1986 and renamed A. G. Farquharson, then sold to Algoma and renaming again in 1998. Under it three names it would be commonly seen along the St. Mary's, St. Clair, and the St. Lawrence rivers for over 38 years of useful service.
