Repairs to the 31,940 dwt bulker are estimated at $5 million and will include replacing 30 ft. of damaged hull with a new 40 ft section that will increase the vessel's overall length to 740 ft, the new maximum for the St. Lawrence seaway. Algowood sank in a dock at Bruce Mines while loading aggregate on June 2 and was refloated on July 8.
