Tuvaq in St. John's for the winter?

The Tuvaq as shown secured in St. John's Dec 24, 2011. The ship spent last winter in Lewisporte, Newfoundland, but I am thinking that there maynot be enough room in Lewisporte now.
The Woodward Group recently bought two new tankers the Alsterstern, and Havelstern, and they are in Lewisporte along with the Nanny and Mokami. The Dorsch is at the dockyard dock having work done.
