The first Butterfly of spring

The Greek owned, Bahamas flag tanker Butterfly is anchored in Bedford Basin. Built in 2005 it is a 26,913 gross tons, 47,326 deadweight tonnes product tanker built by the Onomichi Zosen KK yard in Japan. As with all modern tankers it is double hulled. It also carries heating coils for its cargo.
There seems to be some delay at the refinery. The ship arrived March 23, and went to anchor March 25. A crude oil tanker has been expected for some days, but it is waiting off Halifax at anchor.
