I hope you are able to see her, thanks for the comment, she is worth looking at, try and get aboard she is really nice inside, I have photos you may have seen them 2 and a half years ago.

Nice photo. Im hoping to get to Shelburne before she transits the Atlantic. Or Maybe I'll get lucky and she'll refuel here in St. John's. Thanks for sharing the photo.

Thanks Dean, a bit chilly but worth the wait.

Nice one Kent. Glad you were able to photograph her on the way down.

Thanks Matt, too bad it did not work out, like you said bad moves all around, poor planning as well.

It was chillllly near the water,and the sun was non cooperative, but the bowl of pea soup I had at the Bayview Resturant was hot and delicious, otherwise not a nice day, It seems uncanny, I went through that vessel in 2004 while she was in Montreal being inspected, now after only a short period of time, (2 years) she is gone, I had an idea it would not work out.

thanks for posting this Kent, a ship which being from Rochester, I really wished couldve worked out. Too many poor business moves. Great shot thanks

Very nice shot Kent. You got her first on her way up and now you get to capture on camera once again. All that security needed surely didn't help in giving the venture a fair chance. Too bad.
