CARGO TRANSFER In Bedford Basin
Crude oil tanker AMERICAS SPIRIT commenced a cargo transfer from sister vessel AUSTRALIAN SPIRIT in the Bedford Basin early AM on16th December 2014. This operation will permit repairs to be carried out on the AUSTRALIAN SPIRIT's rudder/steering problem. A small fleet of tugs nudged the AMERICAS SPIRIT alongside her anchored sister. Note the fenders deployed on the vessels Port side. The ships cranes were quickly brought into operation for pumping connections to be made (no time lost here). Note the draught differences between the near identical sister ships before the transfer commenced.
