583-Foot Coal Boat Calls At Oswego Today

The Canada Steamship Lines, Ltd. freighter Stadacona, largest coal carrier to load in Oswego, returned to this port this afternoon for the first time in several years. She arrived at press time to load a partial shipment for Toronto and Hamilton.

The 583-footer is almost 80 feet longer than the United States Gypsum which is on the Sodus to Oswego run for the Niagara Mohawk Power Corp. steam station stockpile this summer.

The Stadacona will load 1,207 tons for the two Canadian ports, having three holds assigned for Hamilton cargo and two for the Toronto coal. Then it will move on to Sodus to load more coal for the Canadian ports.

For Oswegonians to see the ship before it gets out of sight towards Sodus they must reach the water front as soon as they receive this paper. Erie-Lackawanna freight agent George Regan estimates loading time at around 90 minutes for this small shipment, which is less than 10 percent of the Stadacona's capacity.
