Oceanex Connaigra - back at sea

The ConRo Oceanex Connaigra left drydock in Boston  late this morning after installation of a new controllable pitch propeller hub.

After entering service in October of 2013 the ship experienced a malfunction in mid-November and tied up in Halifax from November 23 to December 8. She entered drydock in Boston December 9 and the new hub was installed late last week.
By this evening the ship was steaming across the Gulf of Maine at better than 20 knots, so the new component must be working!
She is due to sail from Montreal December 31 for St.John's.
