The pilot on board told me the engine started on the first try and that it had been well maintained. She was doing 9.5 knots (really 7.5 + the 2 knot-current) when she sailed past Verchères so I presume it will take her quite a while to reach Turkey (Aliaga?).

So she's going for scrap? Sad to see. Another fine looking lady gone.

Well, well... they finally got her to turn over them engines.... Someone was talking to me about her this week. Said she was leaving but not sure when exactly. Hope she makes it allright... seeing as humans are on board.... Wouldn't want her to have any mishaps under this condition.

Good bye old girl! :-?

Nice last look at her, Marc. Thanks for getting it. :-)
