Algosar is seen in photograph transiting downbound in the Welland Canal during the afternoon hours of June 26th, 1999. At the time it was taken she was sailing northwards in the channel below lock 1 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, and was heading for Lake Ontario.

In 1997, Algoma Tankers Ltd. (a division of Algoma Central Corp., Sault Ste, Marie, ON) acquired the Imperial St. Clair renaming her the Algosar. Algoma Tankers kept the Algosar active carrying petroleum products throughout the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway.

In August 2004, the Algosar was sold to Genesis Worldwide Shipping & Trading in Apapa, Nigeria and renamed Genesis Explorer. Her registry was changed to Moroni, Comoros. Departed Quebec City in early January 2005 with a load of tallow for Africa.

Sold for scrap in April 2011 and the name was shortened to Explorer. Possibly scrapped in Nigeria.
