Good Bye Shimushir - underway, escorted by Prince Rupert Port Authority AND Smit Clyde

These Prince Rupert Port Authority Rescue Vessels are supposed to protect our coastlines from Tanker distress?

Then again there's the loop de loop at the beginning, why do it in such tight quarters, without or without Smit Clyde

Upon closer inspection of the image above .....  the ferry route from Prince Rupert to Skidgate is called Yellowhead Highway # 16 .... shouldn't the ferry be FREE?

Checkmate: Russian Naval Fleet land locked?

Did we mention that it's an LNG tanker?

Ramdane Abane has been disabled in the Dardanelles.
The incident occurred today in the Canakkale Strait around 9 am local time. The vessel was turning the Kilitbahir narrows, Dardanelles' narrowest point when it suffered an engine failure.
The 274-metre vessel is laden with 80,000 tonnes of LNG and was accompanied by three tugs during the incident. The cause of the blackout is still unknown. Having been assisted by the tugs, the captain of the LNG tanker was able to control his vessel.
Ramdane Abane (IMO number 7411961 and MMSI 605076080) was built in 1981 and is registered in Algeria. The deadweight of the vessel is 83,296 DWT.
