There she goes - here she comes.

1. Malmnes passes beneath the MacKay bridge for the Basin.

2. After turning she heads back down the harbour for sea.

Repairs complete at pier 9A the self-unloader Malmnes sailed this afternoon. She was berthed bow north, so rather than try to turn in the Narrows, she sailed out into Bedford Basin, turned there, then headed to sea.

The well named Narrows would be too narrow to turn in without a tug in today's windy conditions.

This move gave a good opportunity to see her self-unloading gear from a couple of different angles.
