The Halifax Port Corporation's jack of all trades workboat Maintainer I was hauled out this week for refit at pier 29. The boat does a variety of chores related to maintaining the port's fendering system, and chases around picking up harbour flotsam, such as deadheads and other hazards.
After a busy winter, it is time for a cleanup, shave and haircut before the summer season starts.
The boat was built in 1995 by A.F.Theriault & Son Ltd of Meteghan River, NS. It has a 210 bhp engine, a deck crane and towing bit.
