Hi guys,

What a story! When Phil De Fayre posted his post on the 3rd of January I went to see the text and photos that were posted in the shipfax blog. I was looking at the photos of the damaged hull on the Port side of the ATHABASKAN and suddenly had a flash. I remember seeing some dents and rusts spots on the ship while it was in transit before what happened in Nova Scotia.

It is possible that the actual damage is 'less severe' than what it first looked like.

Here is a before and after view.

Well done Steve. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So, immagine 3 photos with full analysis.

Good eye Steve!
I'd say those scrapes are probably from a lock- they look similar to what is seen on the seaway max bunkers that pull in to halifax. The rest of the slices seem to be the result of the tug impact

Update (2013-01-13)

Seems that the HMCS ATHASBASKAN is back on the move towards Halifax. Here are pictures from DON MERRIT's Facebook page (... with his permission).
