The chemical and oil tanker Alioth is seen in this photograph while she was transiting downbound in the Welland Canal during the afternoon hours of May 26th, 2001. At the time it was taken she was sailing northbound in the canal above lock 2 destined for Houston, Texas with xylene and benzene from Sarnia, Ontario

Construction of this ship was ordered in May of 1997 at the Uljanik Brodogradiliste shipyard in Croatia and in May of the following year her keel was laid and building began. In October of that year the nearly completed ship was launched and in July of 1999 she entered service under the Liberian flag as Alioth. When this photograph was added to the archives she was still operational under this name for Novoship (UK) Ltd.
