She is the Arca1, previously named Arca, stationed in Montreal harbor for many years, as a Bunker Barge for Shell. She was a fleet mate of mine when I was working at VShips. Powered by 2 12V71 detroits driving outboards like drives. She was built a long time ago as a bunker barge for Esso, but was widened. Decommissioned in 2014, I see ownership went to Heddle Marine, and now to Petroil of Mexico. MacMcKay says it was on her way to the Dominican Republic at the time. After spending her life in sheltered waters one must question the decision to allow such a vessel to head out to sea in January, North Atlantic.
