Re: "Tanker in for cleaning," Nov. 3.
The picture of the tanker F.D. Gennaro Aurilia clearly showed the enormous size of this ship.
However, the tankers planned to be using the Douglas Channel from Kitimat to the Pacific are to be at least 100 metres longer, about twice the beam and with gross tonnage of 300,000 versus the F.D. Gennaro Aurilia with just under 75,000 deadweight tonnage.
Sort of puts that tanker thing in a new perspective, doesn't it?
