Does anybody have the answer to the following question?
I have a question: What is the MAX permitted beam of the salties
passing through the Seaway & Welland canal locks?
Nowhere I can find that information....
I noticed the heavy lift US flagged Maersk Illinois & Texas have 23 mtr and they visited Milwaukee, so they have cleared all
the locks without any problem.
Also noticed several Federal Bulkers with a beam of 27 mtrs, but
not so sure they go all the way up to CHI/Milwaukee area..
Thank you for your assistance.
