There was no downbound traffic close at hand but lots of upbounders.  To facilitate traffic movement the Seaway used both sides of the flight locks for upbounders.  Algoeast approaching 4 west, Algosoo in 6 west and Quebecois in 5 east.
6-flights-11-23-11-pb.jpg (79281 bytes)
At the top of the flights the Quebecois moves toward Lock 7 from 6 east while the Algoeast waits in 6 west.  While you can't see it the Algoma Mariner was in 5 east and the Stephen B Roman was entering 4 west, both upbound.

Norman McLeod and the Everlast approach the Homer bridge upbound.

9-quebec-11-23-11-pb.jpg (84732 bytes)
Quebecois approaching Lock 7.  Normally when the ships leave 6 west they rub the wall into 7.  In this case, after leaving Lock 6 east, the Captain took her into 7 without touching on either side.
