Atlantic Shrike, the sister of Atlantic Towing's other new Damen-designed Atlantic Griffin, has also begun sea trials. She headed out this morning, the first time I have seen her on the move.
Sometimes I just get lucky, and my ferry ride this morning coincided perfectly with Atlantic Shrike's transit out to sea.

Where both Atlantic Griffin and Atlantic Shrike are registered in St. John's, NL, I'm not sure how often we will see them in Halifax once they are accepted into service by Atlantic Towing.
