North Fighter fights the ice - the ice wins

The chemical tanker North Fighter limped into Halifax early this morning for propeller repairs. The ship has apparently been tangling with Gulf of St.Lawrence ice and incurred some damage.

Built in 2006 the 11662 gross tons vessel is registered in Panama but is operated by the Singapore based Ems Ship Management.
Update: Repairs were made in quick time and the ship sailed at 6 pm. Since her visit to Halifax February 4, for bunkers, the ship had been to La Baie and Grande Anse, Quebec, on the Saguenay River, where there is lots of ice.
