Océan Basque to be

The first signs that Groupe Océan have taken over the former Pointe aux Basques became evident this week. Océan blue paint has been applied to the first part of the former name and port of registry, and it won't be long before the new lettering shows up.
The official name change to Océan Basques and port of registry to Quebec City took place December 2013.
So far the Svitzer funnel mark has not changed, and the tug is still sitting idle at the Svitzer dock in Halifax.
