Busy in Halifax

This afternoon Point Chebucto comes alongside Zim Istanbul, stern first, to make up for berthing the ship at Halterm. The pilot wanted the tug as far aft as possible, but did not want the tug's stern to fall under the ship's cutaway.

The port was very busy and windy this morning. With only four tugs available, Svitzer and Atlantic Towing were kept busy from about 0630 to 1130. Here Point Chebucto returns to base after spending all morning berthing ships.

Atlantic Fir and Point Chebucto had just berthed the Undine at Autoport. It was the third and fourth berthing for each tug (respectively) for the morning. Atlantic Larch and Point Valiant had just unberthed the tanker North Point, which was the third and fourth jobs for each of them as well.
