Leonard M - new name to get used to.

1. Point Halifax returns to the dock with a bit of Maersk blue paint on its tires (a hint of things to come.)

After 26 years under one owner, and carrying the same name, the tug Point Halifax was sold earlier this year to McKeil Work Boats of Hamilton, ON. It has now been renamed Leonard M.

It will take some getting used to on my part, but in time I am sure it will settle in.

Built in 1986 it was the first azimuthing stern drive tug in eastern Canada and was owned by Eastern Canada Towing Ltd (which became Svitzer Canada, a company owned by AP Moller Maersk). It is rated at 4200 bhp, and will be an important addition to the McKeil fleet.
