On March 14 Oceanex Inc applied for an additional coasting license for Thebeland. The original license was from January 30 to May 31, to allow time for refits of Oceanex Sanderling and Cabot.
The new license is from May 31 to August 15, and cites both the Montreal/ St.John's route and the Halifax/St.John's/ Corner Brook route.
No reason is given in the application to the Canadian Transportation Agency for this extension.
Update: Oceanex's Cabot is due in Las Palmas tomorrow for her refit, and Thebeland is now running the Montreal/St.John's run.
