The coaster Fort Ramezay is seen in this photograph transiting upbound in the Welland Canal
during the afternoon hours of a day in December of 1979. At the time it was taken she was sailing southbound
in Port Weller harbour and was making her way towards lock 1 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.

This ship was built in 1963 and was owned by Logistic Navigation Inc., of Montreal, Quebec but
was on charter to Desgagnes Group Inc. for a short time. Notice the Desgagnes flag on her foremast and the
laker Marinsal in the backgound at Fort Ramezay's bow!
