Nice view of the wear incurred when entering locks.  The ships need to rub against the wall in order to guide themselves into the lock chamber.  By doing this they rub off paint and also set in the steel plate between the frames (ribs).  In this photo the frames are quite prominent as a result of the wear.  Steel work is required every so often to repair this.

Algosar, recently converted to coal it appears, after leaving Lock 7 upbound.

Below the anchor pocket on the Algosar are two guides for the anchor.  One of them has been damaged.  This does not go through the hull so does not affect seaworthiness.

The steel upright device just behind the foremast appears to be a float that can be used alongside to give the ship better stability when working heavy cargo.  It attaches to the ship like a raft thereby increasing the ships beam and reducing its tendency to heel.
