Stephen B. Roman
She was originally launched on April 24, 1965, as the Fort William, a "package freighter" carrying ore pellets for the Canadian Steamship Lines. She capsized on September 14, 1965, due to human error when unloading, and her lower holds were emptied, while her upper decks were heavily loaded. After she capsized aerosolized Calcium Chloride powder exploded when exposed to water. Five sailors lost their lives. The vessel was salvaged and restored to service in May 1966.
