Leif Ericson - departs at last

Marine Atlantic's truck ferry Leif Ericson got away form the Novadock late this afternoon after a six week refit.
The ship spent yesterday and today afloat in the Novadock, seemingly ready to sail.
It appeared however that one of the travelling platforms mounted on the drydock wall was out of position at the south end of the dock, hanging out over the water.

However by 1630 the ship was clear of the dock and in the lower harbour preparing for a compass swing before heading to sea. The ship did not use any tugs to leave the drydock.
