Big and Little

The tanker Algoscotia arrived early this morning and tied up at pier 9c. While there she will take on stores and do some repair work before moving to Imperial Oil this evening. Also she will be re-fueled by fleet mate Algoma Dartmouth. The smaller sister tanker is dedicated to bunkering in Halifax and carries two inflated fenders of the Yokohma type, on her starboard side. These remain in the water at all times and are used as cushions during refueling operations.
