A few posts recently have left readers dangling, so here are some updates:

Jim Kilabuk sailed from Halifax April 30. Before leaving however, it went to the Shearwater military pier and loaded some deck cargo for transport to the west coast. Shearwater is the base for the Royal Canadian Navy's Fleet Diving Unit Atlantic, but is used by all branches of the local military. Due to the position of the work I wasn't able to tell exactly what was being loaded.

Lois M sailed April 20 with the barge Nunavut Spirit and a large deck load of steel fabricaiotns for the Hebron gravity base prpoject.
The tug returned to Halifax May 1 with the barge MM300 to load more cargo. On Saturday May 2, I noted a large tank already loaded on deck.

Svitzer Cartier has arrived at Port Cartier after stops at M├ęchins, presumably for drydocking, and at Sept Iles. 

Following the sale of Maersk Placentia comes the registration of their latest tug/supplier, Maersk Cutter the 6450 grt ship was registered in St.John's April 28. It is under construction at the Asenav shipyard in Santiago, Chile.
