The Molly Kool tied up along side the Hudson, having put into BIO after responding to the Holiday Island fire.
with the end of the month, she is likely here for crew change. BIO typically has a busy dock at crew change time, but this is the first time i can recall seeing one ship tied up against another.
Danish Navy Frigate HDMS Triton arrived this afternoon, and tied up at the dockyard.
The ship is one of four Thetis Class frigates and is based on the StanFlex 3000 design. She was commissioned in 1991, making her slightly older then the Halifax Class. The ship normally carries a crew of 60, but has accommodation for 100.
HDMS Triton will also be participating in OP Nanook.
the USCGC Bear arrived this morning and tied up at the dockyard. Bear is a Medium Endurance cutter, and was commissioned in 1983. The ship is home-ported in Portsmouth Virginia. This class of vessel frequently visits Halifax, though typically New England based ships. Bear has not been here during the existence of this blog.
The Ship will be participating in Op Nanook. The Danish Navy Frigate HDMS Triton is also due this afternoon.
A Proper yacht is tied up at Purdys Wharf. The Mari-Chi III was built in 1997, and besides being luxurious also puts up some impressive racing numbers. The Boat set the monohull transatlantic record in (NY to S. England) 1998, crossing in in 8d 23h. she also claimed the fastest ever from Sydney to Hobart in 1999.
She normally sails with a crew of 7, but grows to 25 when shes racing. Interior shots and more information can be found at https://www.mari-cha.com/
