Downrig canal fenders

Safety aloft and up & overs
Fire, Man Overboard & Abandon ship drills.
Walk- through of station bill.
Captain’s Notes: All new hands finally had a formal “meet the Captain” (it’s been a busy few days!).
Bluenose II, St Lawrence II and Denis Sullivan joined us at our anchorage. Pride of Baltimore II and U.S. Brig Niagara are approaching Lock 8. I have a hunch they could turn up here, too. That would make for quite a picture. Empire Sandy, HMCS Oriole & Santa Maria in the first third of the canal.
Position: Anchored Port Colborne
Weather: Light Southwesterly winds, partly cloudy and hot. Distant thunderstorms.
