July 24, 2022 TMSA 3

Product tanker ALGOSCOTIA made an emergency call at port of Baie-Comeau, Quebec Province, Canada, about a month ago, after encountering rudder problems. Tanker was suuposed to fix the problem and resume voyage, but she has been stuck in port for a month or more, waiting for spare parts, and will probably remain at port until at least Jul 20. Tanker is berthed along pier which is used by local fishermen, understood anglers, during mackerel season, but because of tanker berth is closed for strollers and anglers, hence locals concerns and displeasure.
