Default Luckily this freighter didn't do this during the ST. Clair races

I was at the Voyager for the races and could just imagine the stampede that this would of caused.
I think they said this was shot from the Voyager parking lot.
Freighter lost power.

guess they had an engine fire and lost all power. At the time they were heading down river and ended up dropping an anchor, as she was at the mercy of the current. stern swung around taking out the channel marker and coming to a stop blocking the Pine River. I'm sure somehow the town of Saint Clair quickly turned this into a drinking event
