Capt. Earl W. Winsor departs Lewisporte

The ferry Capt. Earl W. Winsor departed Lewisporte Jan 30, 2019 under tow of the tug R.J. Ballott to Springdale, where the ship will be refurbished from what I head. The Winsor built in 1972 served as the Prince Nova, and was bought in 1998 and renamed Capt. Earl W. Winsor, after a long time serving member of the house of Assembly, serving the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. The ship was purchased for $300,000 and to get it ready for the Fogo Service $2 million was spent. The photo attached was taken in 2011, looking pretty good.

Hopefully she finds useful service somewhere. It’s a better fate than the scrapper. And it’s “Winsor”, sir.
