The forward section of the Blough was built minus her forward ballast tanks, due to drydock restrictions at the time. When a new drydock was completed the stern section was built to it's full width with the bow section being joined with the stern section in the new drydock. There the forward ballast tanks were installed giving the bow section it's 105 foot width.
