      I think an investigation is desperately needed here. Something is fishy about this whole story and Transport Canada's role in it. BTW, the song you like, Nancy, is called Weighty Ghost, by Wintersleep, from Halifax no less.

    I for one, hopes that someone will see the potential in the Lyubov Orlova...she looked to be a good seafaring vessel... I hope someone with lots of money can put her back in service where she belongs, (if she still exists out there). That vessel fell into the hands of idiots, that was her only crime.

    Obviously the wrong tug was initially hired for the job during winter and especially to start the tow out with the forecast they had. TC St. John's inspectors are very thorough when inspecting Canadian owned Tugs and I'm sure they would have stalled the Lyubov Orlova's departure until all conditions were suitable had regulations allowed them the authority to do so with foreign owned vessels. Great decision on their part to order the Charlene Hunt back into port. The Crew probably have TC St. John's inspectors to thank for still being alive. As for the Lyubov Orlova, drifting is free (after Canadian taxpayers stopped paying to save it). When it get across the pond it will most likely be towed in for scrap there or rebuilt to live another life like so many other ships saved from the scrap pile.

    This whole thing is such a farce. To send that small tug out to the North Atlantic this time of year and expect it to tow the Orlova all the way to the Dominican Republic. I think the intention all along was to get this thing out of our port and set it adrift with the hopes it will sink.

    If this piece-of-trash ties up in St.Johns Harbour again,the Tax payers of St.Johns should refuse to pay taxes until this trash is thrown-out in da-bay.If a family fell on hard times, they would get no breaks on taxes!,but yet with all the time & money that has been spent on this crap,it`ll get a pardon. We knew it was coming back when the crew {kids in the hall},forgot to untie all the ropes of the boat before it left. I would`nt tow da-wifes car across NL with a clothesline,but those SEAFAREING MEN tried to tow a ship with clothesline across the Atlantic! LOL

    Correct me if I am wrong, but an abandonded ship can be boarded by anyone and claimed by anyone. Much like "finders keepers" on shore. If so, why don't the Port Authority take it themselves and sell it for scrap.
