Panuke Sea incident at Pier 9B

See Today's Shipfax for an account of the incident and a history of the supplier.

Atlantic at Full Strength

Atlantic Towing Ltd is now up to full strength in its new Halifax operation. It has four tugs in its roster now, which should be enough to handle most of what goes on here on a daily basis. There will be exceptions however, and it will be interesting to see how they respond.

My early morning shot of their Woodside base shows Atlantic Willow in the foreground, with, from left to right in the background, Atlantic Oak, Atlantic Larch and Atlantic Spruce.
