2/6 - While the winter has stopped most shipping on the Great Lakes the ferry Riverdance became stranded on a beach in Lancashire located in North West England. The ferry was struck by a freak wave on January 31 causing the cargo to shift and the vessel to take on a list. The ferry makes regular trips in the Irish Sea from Northern Ireland to Heysham in Lancashire. The ferry was tossed by the seas as rescuers took passengers and crew members to safety in helicopter rescues. Nine of the 19 crew members were still on board as the full force of the ocean pushed it on to the north shore of Blackpool beach. From the Daily Mail Newspaper

Rt. Hon. Paul J. Martin dock on the east pier at Wharf 16.

The Algosoo docked on the southeast wall near the entrance to Lock 8. Notice the anchor on the pier and service trucks parked along side.

The CSL Tadoussac is docked in front of Algosoo, bow to bow. Her anchor is also on the pier with service trucks. She is also sitting high on the water so that the bow thruster is dry.

A long range view of the Calumet tied up for scrapping. She appears to be listing about 5 degrees starboard. The black stern on the right is the Canadian Transport.

Also a long range view of the Calumet with the Port Colborne light on the opposite side on the break wall.
