Algoma Dartmouth - off to New York (again)

No sooner had Algoma Dartmouth finished bunkering Ocean Odyssey (see previous post) than she set sail for New York. RMI Marine's workboat Captain Jim was standing by to relieve the 'Dartmouth of her fenders, and and soon as she was clear, the tanker headed outbound.

By my count this is the fourth trip that the bunkering tanker has made to New York.Until the closing of Imperial Oil's refinery last fall, the ship had never strayed from Halifax harbour, except for refit. Now the nearest source of ship's fuel seems to be New York
