Aivik I sails - where is Mitiq
The ship completed a compass calibration before it left, and in the above photo the adjuster is just about to descend the pilot ladder to the waiting launch Captain Jim.
The ship's replacement for Nunavut Eastern Arctic Shipping, to be named Mitiq, has yet to appear, but the the recent Halifax caller Florijngracht turned off its AIS, somewhere between Baie-Comeau and Matane. (It's back on in Matane). Matane was its destination, and will likely load paper there.
It now seems that Emmagracht will be the new NEAS ship. It is in the Atlantic en route to Valleyfield, QC.
