7/6 - Algobay aground in St. Lawrence River northwest of Chippewa Point, NY
-Fritz Hager

Algobay pointed northwest, about 300 yards outside the Seaway channel between Dark Island (Singer Castle) and Indian Chief Island.

Close-up of bulbous bow with depth markings showing about 15 feet of hull under the bow. The stern markings show 27'. The chart shows a 9' shoal and surrounding 15-25' depths just under the #1-2 cargo holds.

Bow-on view of both hooks down. The starboard side anchor chain runs under the hull. Surface and underwater terrain in the immediate area is solid but mostly smooth, gently undulating granite.

Two Algobay crewmembers in a 17' craft with 20 HP engine make for Chippewa Bay, NY boat launch, about 2 miles, in order "to pick up an inspector" of some unsaid capacity and purpose. Other crewmembers suggested the plan is to pull Algobay off the shoal on Tuesday using multiple tugs.

View looking east of the Algobay aground off Indian Chief Island, with the Seaway channel, perpendicular to the boat, and Chippewa Point, NY in the background.
