Mont Blanc


The BBC Mont Blanc arrived today with a deck load of parts of something – likely more of the Cement Plant Being Constructed in Quebec. She tied up at pier 30 just before 1800, forward of the Asian Moon.

Mont Blanc is of course a problematic name for a vessel in Halifax. Recall it was the Mont Blanc colliding with the Imo in the narrows that caused the Halifax explosion. The BBC Mont Blanc is 125m in length vs the SS Mont Blanc 98m length.

  1. I am spending much of my life trying to correct the record: Imo collided with Mont Blanc, not the other way around. You could help! See my defense of Pilot Mackey:
