Down on the Maine State Pier in Portland the Alida Gorthon is in port. It’s a “Side Loader Vessel” according to Transatlantic the Swedish company that owns the ship. They report that:

Delivered 1977 by Korea Shipbuilding and Engineering Corp, Pusan, Rep. of Korea. Rebuilt to Side Loader 1990 by Blohm & Voss AG, Hamburg, Germany

Phil reports that the Alida Gorthon, “transport[s] forest products” and, after being “converted in 1990” it “now [has] a sideport pallet loading system rather than the lift on lift off gantry system.”
