The product tanker Seapike is making a return visit to Halifax, anchoring in the lower harbour. It was last here in February 2012 en route from Philadelphia to Lewisporte, NL. It loaded additive for its fuel cargo at that time. http://shipfax.blogspot.ca/2012/02/seapike.html
This time the ship appears to be in ballast.
Seapike in number 3 anchorage.
In a break from the routine of Korean built product tankers, this one was built by Lindenau Schiffswerft + Maschinenfabrik in Kiel, Germany in 2009 and measures 28,449 grt, 43,550 dwt. It is owned by German Tanker Shipping Ltd of Bremen and flies the German flag.
Spring was definitely in the air this afternoon as a few pleasure craft took to the waters of Halifax harbour.
