1-Algomarine-1-1-14-BRW.jpg (115888 bytes)
The Algomarine ran into some trouble trying to back into the Lackawanna Canal this morning. The ship was struggling with ice in the Outer Harbor before heading into the Gateway Metroport salt pier. They were using a tactic of backing up, and then moving ahead to try and break up the thick plate ice and flush out the canal.
2-Algomarine-1-1-14-BRW.jpg (107448 bytes)
After using a tactic of moving ahead and then backing up again, the stern is heading into the entrance of the Lackawanna Canal as the prop wash flushes out chunks of previously broken ice.
3-Algomarine-1-1-14-BRW.jpg (103626 bytes)
The bow section is surrounded by broken plate ice from the ship's back-&-forth movements in the harbor. She was just off Lackawanna for hours on New Years Day trying to get in to port.  
4-Algomarine-1-1-14-BRW.jpg (145969 bytes)
Making some stern way up the canal, Algomarine is about 1/4 of the distance back to the salt unloading apron of the Gateway Metroport Main Dock. The old Bethlehem Steel Coke Ovens loom in the background.
