Cardinal – Bulk carrier RT HON PAUL J MARTIN ran aground on Sunday night,  October 6th on St. Lawrence river off Galop Island, just outside the shipping channel west of Cardinal.

The ship was en route from Port Weller to Quebec.

According to Michael Folsom @theshipwatcher on twitter,  “ship traffic has been allowed to proceed past the grounded Rt Hon Paul J Martin. The area along Galop Island is known for numerous high spots with rocks and water depth is just 20 feet near where the ship sits now.

As of this posting, the ship was still aground. No reports on damages. Engine failure said to be the cause of grounding.
