Fjord Éternité arrives safe and sound

1. Secured in a makeshift cradle of brackets welded to tween deck pontoons, and tied down with numerous wires, the tug appears not to have shifted a bit on the way across.
2. Storm shields have been fitted on all the wheelhouse windows and doors, and her ASD thrusters have been turned outboard. The escort skeg and bow thruster can be seen clearly.

3. Lifting lugs were added aft.

4. The tug Fjord Éternité arrived safely this afternoon after a transatlantic trip aboard the heavy lift ship Fairtlane.

The tug will be offloaded in Bedford Basin, see also photos on Shipfax.
