Word is Preserver will be towed to the scrappers on Wednesday Aug 2. No word on a Departure time as of yet.
UPDATE: looks like the departure time is set for 10:30 this morning. The Anchor chains are forming a towing bridle.
No word on the tug, but i suspect it will be a local one out of Halifax, as no larger tugs are in port, or due. The Mckeil tug Lois M Slipped in Last night, and tied up behind Preserver.
She will be scraped in in Port Colborne, Ontario by Marine Recycling Corp. We covered the announcement in June.

vessels have sailed from Quebec. WDC Has published the following chart of docking locations. I suspect arrivals will begin mid week.
today and tomorrow, the mid and stern superblocks are scheduled to be rolled out. The Middle is to be done first, and it already placed on the transporters. The Stern will follow.
The bow superblock sub assemblies were constructed in Woodside, and have been delivered to the yard to be assembled into the third superblock. Additional work will continue in the yard. It also appears that a Tower crane is being installed on Pier 8 to facilitate this work.
The USS Dwight D. Eisenhower has a pilot order posted for 0700 July 5th, however the barge along side is due to be moved at 9am.
The USS Winston Churchill Sails at 9, and the USS San Jancinto at 10. Ike’s Departure will likely be around 10, based on the availability of Tugs.
The USNS Robert E. Perry sails today at 1400.
