Beechglen - Hull damage

Click Here for information about purchasing copies of this picture

The Beechglen is seen in this photograph secured at wharf 1 in Port Weller harbour during the afternoon
hours of May 30, 1991. This photograph shows the location on the ship's hull where she broke and folded downwards.
The steel welded across the split was installed so that the ship would be able to survive the tow from Cardinal to
Port Weller without breaking right in half.
