DFO released the above picture today of yesterdays incident. Reports were of a vessel in trouble, off halifax, and CCGS Sambro Was Responding. The Sambro was noted to be in a position between Conrad’s and Lawrencetown beaches, where there appears to be a shoal.
CHS Chart #4237 (Halifax Harbour and Approaches) Refers to the point of land as Fox Point, and the rocks are actually labeled Egg Island.
The Sambro collected the 3 people, and took them to the Government Wharf in Eastern passage where they were tended to by paramedics.
The Noranda Sarah tied up behind BBC Moonstone at pier 9 this morning. She has one turbine blade on deck and possibly more in her hold.
Will update when we see what she leaves behind.
Vera D Tied up at pier 42 today awaiting her turn. Built in 2004, she is flagged in Portugal .
The smaller pair of cranes are out of the way at the end of the pier so she may be waiting for Maersk Palermo to finish.
The port runs 24/7. Sometimes its worth staying up late to see whats going on.
A simple reminder that the harbour is full of vessels, Large and Small.
Captained by Henry Larsen, the RCMP schooner St. Roch was the first ship to completely circumnavigate North America and the second sailing vessel to complete a voyage through the Northwest Passage. She was the first ship to complete the Northwest Passage in the direction west to east, and returned east to west.
She is now part of the Maritime Museum in Vancouver. We have posted a tour on our Flickr page:
the Kings wharf harbour taxi is now in service running between Kings Wharf in Dartmouth, and Sackville landing in Halifax. They also offer trips to the Arm, Mcnabs, and along the waterfront.
The vessel interior looks to be quite spacious. Expect an update after I have gone for a ride.
Last night a Silver Pandora Bracelet with 4 charms was lost along the board walk, somewhere between Cows and East Coast Lifestyle, by the seaport market.
It has sentimental Value.
