Word is the Geared bulker Laura I was hit during ice breaking operations in the St. Lawrence river by the CCGS Henry Larsen. She was bound for Savannah Georgia from Becancour Quebec.
No word on the Larsen however the Laura I is now due in Halifax late Friday afternoon.
Recall last year the CCGS Louis St Laurent also bumped a ship, and last week the USCGC Hollyhock was bumped by a freighter in the Great Lakes – both incidents occurring during icebreaking operations.
More to follow..
UPDATE: She Arrived Friday, on schedule, but had no visible damage. Connors Diving was in Attendance, so its likely the damage is below the waterline.
