Bulkers on the move...
APA pilot Evan MacDonald was tasked to take the hybrid self-unloading bulk carrier Alice Oldendorff off the dock at the Martin Marietta Materials dock at 1300h this afternoon and got underway about 1315h.
The Sophie Oldendorff was boarded by APA pilot Chuck MacDonald at the pilot station and took it in to the same berth vacated by the Alice O.
As the Alice was proceeding outbound the McNally tug Sandra Mary was departing from Mulgrave but hesitated crossing the Strait til the bigger vessel had passed .
Both vessels passed port to port just abeam of of the NS Power coal dock.
Assisting in the docking manouever in Aulds Cove was the tug Point Valiant with Tugmaster Jerry Maltby in the wheelhouse.
Earlier in the day the gasoline tanker Teatralny Bridge
made a return visit to Nustar and was berthed at the inside dock.
