Noticeably absent from the announcement yesterday by Davie of the re-floating of the Balder Viking was the ships new Coast Guard name.
I’m told this ship will be named the CCGS Captain Molly Kool – Named after the the first woman In North America to hold a Master Mariner License. The ship will be Commissioned in St. John’s
Wikipedia has a brief biography of her life. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molly_Kool
Update – the ship was imported and registered as Balder Viking, and it has not yet been renamed. i also goofed and used Vidar viking as the name, not balder – these points have been corrected.
If the two ships currently shown in Davieship’s drydock are Tor Viking and Balder Viking, then surely the new CCGS Captain Molly Kool is the former Vidar Viking.
hasn’t been renamed/re-registered yet, so still under the old name.
Accepted, but you said the old name was Balder Viking, whereas I think it is Vidar
