I visited a town in Quebec recently that is facing a problem. There is a push to develop an LNG port right next to a marine sanctuary that is meant to protect a beluga nursery in a confined fjord. (The more you look into it, the crazier this idea is… its like, what kind of cheesy Hollywood villain… get a better writer, guys.)
Anyway… they found out that I have worked on oil tankers, and they didn’t lynch me or anything, but they did want to know: what kind of clearance does a canoe or a kayak require ahead of, behind, and on the sides of a laden gas tanker? I don’t know the answer. Does anyone else?
