Australian Spirit and storm preparations

Things are back on a more or less even keel aboard Australian Spirit at pier pier 9C.

With a couple of days of high winds, coupled with the Christmas break, the repair barge has been removed from under the ship's stern and the ship has been ballasted back to normal.
There may be more repair work to be done to the ship's rudder post, but from what can be seen from shore there doesn't seem to be any damage to the ship's propellor, so it may just be a situtaiotn of waiting until a new rudder can be delivered.

Also in advance of the weather the bunkering tanker Algoma Dartmouth moved to pier 9 this morning.

As it stands now the Oceanex Sanderling and Fusion will be spending Christmas in Halifax, but the port has been pretty well cleared out of other active shipping.
