Word is Preserver will be towed to the scrappers on Wednesday Aug 2. No word on a Departure time as of yet.
UPDATE: looks like the departure time is set for 10:30 this morning. The Anchor chains are forming a towing bridle.
No word on the tug, but i suspect it will be a local one out of Halifax, as no larger tugs are in port, or due. The Mckeil tug Lois M Slipped in Last night, and tied up behind Preserver.
She will be scraped in in Port Colborne, Ontario by Marine Recycling Corp. We covered the announcement in June.

Halifax has 2 new pilot boats, Nova Pilot and Scotia Pilot. Both came from Holland via Emskip containership at the end of June. After some training and familiarization both are now in service.
The existing boats have been reassigned. The below photos are of the delivery, and were provided by a friend of the site.
Bonus: Video of a pilot leaving an outbound PCTC
