This past week saw the ALP WINGER and SKANDI CHIEFTAIN in port. The ALP WINGER arrived in port for a few days after towing the rig Henry Goodrich back to Newfoundland, the MAERSK DETECTOR made the trip as well
, and the SKANDI CHIEFTAIN arrived with what looked like survey gear on its stern, it has since left and headed to the gulf.

Right on her heels was the MAERSK DETECTOR arriving from the rig Henry Goodrich which just arrived, later in the morning the ALP WINGER departed for the Azores, this ship towed the Gooderich.
