I have recived word that today is the Last stop in Halifax for the Renate Schulte. She is still suffering from a broken bow thruster, and needs more repair work.
She is due to be replaced by the Micheal A. The Michael A is a unique ship, in that it is run my a german outfit called Sky Sails, who outfit their ships with giant kites, to use the wind to save fuel.
You can find out more about the Michael A and her sky Sail at http://www.skysails.info/english/media/photos-and-graphics/mv-michael-a/
