Muntgracht to Fairview Cove.

Arriving into the setting Sun, the Spliethoff  M-class vessel Muntgracht put in for a very quick stop.  Tieing up just after 6 pm, she is scheduled to sail at 8pm. so short is the stay, that the tug Atlantic Oak tied up against the se wall behind her.

Cargo operations began right away, and appear to 20′ flat racks with radioactive material casks. You may recall a failure of one of these caused a scare on a ACL ship a few years ago. US Customs rules make it simpler to import these to Canada, then truck them to the US, rather then shipping directly.

Spliethoff seems to have taken over this business as of late.
