The general cargo ship Pinega is seen in this photograph as she was transiting downbound in the Welland Canal during the morning hours of May 11th, 2001. At the time it was taken she was sailing northbound in the canal north of lock 3 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. She had loaded soybeans in Goderich, Ontario and she was heading for England to unload.

The general cargo ship Pinega was launched during April of 1991 by the Malta Shipbuilding Company in Malta and she entered service during May of 1992 as (a) Kapitan Zuzenko. At that time she flew the Russian flag. In July of 1998 she was sold and renamed (b) Pinega and at the time this photograph was added to the archives she still sailed as Pinega
