Refit for the Bond
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.
