Saying Goodbye

The cargo ship Ethan (ex Melissa Desgagnés ex Ontadoc) sailed this afternoon after fueling yesterday. [see previous posts]

Heading out into windy conditions and rough seas, in ballast. 

After a delay of nearly two hours when the aftermost crane apparently broke down while trying to retrieve the gangway, the ship finally got away from pier 31.

The last piloted shipping movement from Halifax for the year and the decade, the ship is heading for Freeport, Bahamas. The Caribbean seems to be a black hole into which old ships are sucked and sometimes vanish. Perhaps this one will be an exception.
