OOCL Hong Kong Spent an hour in the inner harbour yesterday afternoon, presumably due to an issue with bridge clearances. OOCL Vessels usually pass with 2-3m (6-9′) of clearance, so a particularly high tide could delay passage. Checking the Tide Tables for yesterday, the Tide was ebbing (declining), and an hour delay would only be about 20cm. (8″).
Ships are often held if there is a potential Jumper on the bridge. This also would result in traffic Being stopped.
Zim Savannah Tied up at Pier 35. Since Zim Ships usually tie up at Pier 41/42 i rarely get pictures. Pier 41 is Occupied By K-Lines Tsing Ma Bridge, and 42 is Blocked by construction.
Be on the lookout for AFL New England. Atlantic Feeder lines has announced a new service between Halifax, Boston and Portland Maine. Reports have the Service starting in the next week or so, and the Vessel is currently tied up in Portland.

A Rarity for me to capture, K-Line Vessels always seem to arrive and depart at awkward times. Lions Gate Bridge (Named for the Bridge in Vancouver)Arrived at Halterm just prior to Berta.
Atlantic Cartier Trailed the Both of them
Earlier in the Day, Oceanex Sanderling Arrived (Autoport), As did the Liberian registered tanker Glenda Melissa (Imperial Oil)who is apparently very New, due to very clean paint, and only 1 photo of her being available of her in New Jersey 10 days ago (Via Shipspotting).
New York Express Picked up her Pilot at 1530, and Zim Mediterranean took up Anchor in The Outer Anchorage, Due at Halterm Tomorrow Morning. Berta and Lions Gate Bridge are scheduled to depart Early this evening.
Berta Arrived today as originally planned, filling in for Reykjafoss (who is believed to still be in Agentia NFLD). As Reported at Shipfax Berta first arrived on may 16th, outside of what Eimskip Published.
