The three R’s of navigation are; red, right, returning. Meaning that keeping the red buoys or lights on your starboard side when you are heading from the ocean or in this case, upriver will keep you in the safe water of the channel. Of course this Laker owned by the Upper Lakes Shipping out of Toronto, Ontario only travels the Great Lakes and was never intended to be used in the ocean. Built in 1967, first named the “Demeterton” until 1975 when it was renamed the “St Lawrence Navigator” and finally named the “Canadian Navigator”
The vessel is a diesel powered, bulk carrier with a length of 729 feet 10 inches and a beam of 75 feet 10 inches. Its maximum cargo capacity is 31,600 tons.
