The bulk carrier Millenium Raptor is seen in this photograph transitting downbound in the Welland Canal during the morning hours of August 28, 2000. At the time it was taken she was sailing northbound in the canal north of lock 3 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada and she was heading for Europe with grain.

She was built in England during 1981, launched in February of 1982 and entered service as (a) Broompark in April of that year. In February of 1999 she was sold and shortly thereafter, renamed (b) Millenium Raptor and she still sailed as such when this picture was added to the archives.
