Transfer complete

The fuel transfer from the tanker Atlantic Muse to Travestern was completed late this afternoon.

Tugs Atlantic Oak and Atlantic Willow pulled Travestern away and while it recovered its fenders, Oak then went to Atlantic Muse and secured on her stern as tethered escort.

Travestern headed for an overnighter at pier 27. Its blue hull paint appeared gray in the low red sun.[As painters know from the colour wheel, Red plus Blue produces gray.]

Regrettably light had faded before I could catch Atlantic Muse outbound. It is headed for Montreal. As we near the end of daylight saving time, late afternoon photos will  become rarer and rarer until January.
