Resurrecting the African Queen - Independent Online

Durban - A century is long enough for old World War I weapons left in central Africa to be rusted, but short enough for a gunship-turned ferry to still be plying the waters of the world’s second deepest lake. Off and on.

The Tanzanian-registered MV Liemba has been running erratically over the past couple of months. A source in landlocked Zambia’s port of Mpulungu said locals hoped it would be up and running again before next year.

Word also came from Bujumbura, capital of landlocked Burundi, that the vessel had not called in at the opposite, northern end of Lake Tanganyika for some time.

Between Zambia in the south and Burundi in the north, the lake shore covers hundreds of kilometres of Democratic Republic of Congo soil on its western bank and Tanzanian territory on the east.

Kigoma, the main town in the latter country, is the Liemba’s home port.

It’s also where Kaizer Wilhelm II’s soldiers sunk the vessel, then called the Graf von Götzen, a century ago at the end of The Great War. It was later brought up to the surface again, renamed after the local name for the lake and put back into service.

The closest The Independent on Saturday could get to an official account of the boat’s activities was from the outspoken opposition MP for Kigoma, Zitto Kabwe, who said in an email: “Yes, the Liemba is still sailing. But it is still challenging because of it being old and because of poor management.

“She is key for transport in our villages. Her planned rehabilitation will enable it to continue serving our people longer and keeping the history.”

Kigoma resident and former Norwegian aid worker Oddvar Jakobsen said if the 70m, 1 200-ton “grand lady” was restored to her former glory she would be “such an asset”.

“Not only to the tourists, but also to the population living along the shores who depend on Liemba as a link to the outside for travel and goods.”

Efforts to get comment from Tanzanian maritime authorities were unsuccessful.

Built as a steamer in 1913 in Germany, the vessel was dismantled into thousands of crates and shipped to Dar-es-Salaam and then railed to the lake on a newly built line.

Reassembled in 1915, she was equipped with armaments and put to work defending the 673km-long and 72km-wide Lake Tanganyika against enemy forces that controlled enemy shores - Belgium in the case of the now-Congo and now-Burundi and Britain in the case of Zambia.

When the German forces retreated exactly a century ago, they scuttled the vessel near Kigoma.

The victorious Belgians salvaged her, but she sank again in a storm.

In 1921, Britain, to which the Treaty of Versailles had given German East Africa as a mandate territory, ordered it to be brought up to the surface. Much to the surprise of the British salvage team, the engines were found coated in a grease layer.

Six years later it started a new life offering a passenger and cargo service along the lake, calling in at a handful of established ports, visited by small local craft that paddled out to it from lakeside villages.

The Liemba became a diesel-powered vessel in the mid-1970s.

Jakobsen added that the Liemba was thoroughly refurbished by a Danish company from Skagen during the 1990s.

“Her schedule had changed after unrest in Burundi, and was shortened to Kigoma-Mpulungu-Kigoma, cancelling Bujumbura after a couple of encounters with armed rebels,” said Jakobsen.

“Furthermore, the schedule changed from a weekly sailing - departing every Wednesday, returning on Sunday - to sailing only every other week.

“Then, over the past year, even the fortnightly sailings became very unreliable and for months the Liemba has been in the harbour in Kigoma, allegedly for a number of different reasons, economic, technical, labour, etc.”

Jakobsen added that the Liemba’s “sister” ship, the MV Mwongozo, had been converted to do seismic...

Crown in Muskoka impaired canoeing case says yes, a canoe is a vessel - www.muskokaregion.com/

Giordano then turned his attention to the materials submitted by the defence and said he took umbrage to the many dictionary definitions of vessel submitted to the court, which vary in their meanings.

In the original draft of the bill, there were discussions of removing drunk canoeing as an impaired driving offence and adding the definition of a vessel so that it “does not including a vessel that is propelled exclusively by means of muscular power.” Those including canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, paddleboats and the like. After debate, the portion was removed.

“In other words, when the Criminal Code deals with vessel it’s undefined,” said Giordano. “But when the Canada Shipping Act deals with vessel, it is defined.”

Whiskey Review: Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2018 Is Worth Celebrating - Forbes

Out of the 120 casks, 93 hail from the third floor of the northwest side of Warehouse J. And the other 27 are from the third floor of the northwest side of Warehouse I. But here’s the not-so-wonderful news: This year’s allocation will be substantially diminished because the total yield amounted to just 39 percent—with five barrels found to be completely empty. Let’s just say that the angel’s were extra generous with themselves this year.

So only around 2,400 six-bottle cases of the most potent (at 101-proof) Birthday Bourbon will be available nationwide (with an SRP of $100). And that’s just not enough bottles to go around. (My advice: If you’re a Birthday Bourbon collector, go to your sources or retailers and let them know that you want a bottle as soon as it comes in.)

On the nose, the whiskey definitely has a bold caramel characteristic to it. And on the palate—after the first sip—you’ll notice that the caramel flavor intensifies into something that’s a little less sweet. Closer to almost-burnt caramel with hints of very dark chocolate. Further into the tasting, you’ll then notice the spice and the influence of the charred oak, along with a mild creaminess. And though the finish is long, it’s the kind that’s got a little burn to it—meaning this year’s expression, as good as it is, isn’t as smooth as Birthday Bourbon 2017. I’d say, like most whiskeys, it’d benefit from a few drops of water to open it up and expose all the aromas and flavor profiles.

Overall, the bourbon itself is exceptional and in keeping not just with the Old Forester DNA—but with the Birthday Bourbon DNA as well: It’s certainly very Old Forester, just elevated into something that’s richer, extra tasty, and more complex.

“The barrels chosen for this year’s Birthday Bourbon release were an exceptional lot, which received perfect scores across the board in all check points of sensory analysis. The distillate was perfect, the maturation journey followed suit, and eight years ago it was determined that this lot showcased solid structure and an exemplary Old Forester profile,” says Jackie Zykan, Old Forester’s master taster. “I cannot emphasize enough how excited I am...
