1. Atlantic Cartier passes the flare and steam stacks of the Esso refinery in 2009. But it did have a real fire in Hamburg and will not returning to service as fast as I had predicted.
My June 6 post citing the miraculous recovery of Atlantic Cartier was apparently wrong. Usually reliable sources were not reliable this time. The ship is still sitting in Hamburg and ACL has arranged for substitutes from the Grimaldi fleet.
So far these appear to be Grande Angola and Grande Togo, two nice bright yellow ConRos, both will be here during June.
