A rare sight, A Car Carrier Anchored in the Basin. This is likely due to autoport being closed for Easter, and also apparently for a CFIA Gypsy Moth Inspection. With Large tankers tieing up the inner harbour anchorages, the Basin was the only other option.
This is not the first time a PCTC (Pure Car truck Carrier) has been in the basin. In March 2011 Osaka Car tied up at firview cove. Hoegh Masan has also been to halifax before, in June 2011 as CSAV Rio Salado.
Living in the Passage, I'm always fascinated by the auto carriers. They look like floating boxes that should just topple over.
