Florida Highway

A very reasonable destination for winter weary Halifax would be Florida but the nearest most of us will get is the Florida Highway which made a call at Autoport today, en route form Europe to the US.
Outbound from Eastern Passage, Florida Highway has passed Indian Point and has started its turn to round Ives Knoll buoy (in foreground).
Unlike its slab sided port side, the ship's starboard side features a narrow ramp. Its main ramp is mounted on the stern.
Florida Highway was built in 2008 by Imabari Shipbuilding in Marugame, Japan. It is operated by Shoei Kisen Kaisha, the operating arm of the K-Line. Flagged in Panama, the ship measures 59,493 gross tons.
