The semi-submersible barge Giant 4 with tug Union Wrestler arrived in St. John's July 8, 2011.
According to a news report from the local telegram the barge will head to Motier Bay to pick up a huge slab off steel sitting in 80 meters of water since 2005, that is when the Searose production vessel left Marystown for the oil fields off Newfoundland. The production ship left behind a piece of steel 23 meter's in diameter used to cover the moonpool, which is the opening where the ship is connected to oil well equipment on the seabed.
The semi-submersible barge Giant 4 will spent 10 days later this month retrieving the plate.
A further note regarding this barge, it was used in 2000 to help raise the Russian submarine Kursk a year after it exploded and sank in the Barents Sea killing all 118 crewman

The Labrador ferry Sir Robert Bond shown tied up in St. John's at the Newdock shipyard July 13, 2011 undergoing refit.
With no passenger service out of Lewisporte anymore the Bond has spent her time in St. John's since March 29, 2011 undergoing refit and upgrades including painting, repairs to thrusters and installing a new control system. The Bond built in 1975 is old but she is still a fine looking ship and has served Newfoundland and Labrador well from when she was owned by Marine Atlantic and now by the Newfoundland government.
