Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the link to a very interesting article on the Ocean Wrestler - it was full of good information.

You're right! She has been sold to Greek interests, who plan to keep the name Ocean Wrestler. Information here.
She went by Victoria outbound the day after you took this photo, bound for Panama. Maybe she's headed for Greece?

I understood she was sold to Greece recently ?

A real gem, Neil, taken in great light.

Cheers from Verchères and please give my regards to the gang,

Hello Neil:

That's a great shot of the Ocean Wrestler. That's one tug I've not been able to capture, try as I may. I noticed it was leaving Burrard Inlet at 7am on Saturday, and I'm kicking myself that I didn't get out there to shoot the old girl!

Anyway, nice shootin' and I hope to see you out at the 'point' sometime soon.

Mike Zelt
