While in Lewisporte recently, the Coast Guard ship Sir Wilfred Grenfell was in until after Christmas and also in was the ferry Capt. Earl W. Windsor, this ship is laid up, missing was the Bond which is tied up in Clarenville.
The Sir Robert Bond departed Lewisporte Dec 1, 2016 at around 1900hrs heading to Clarenville and under command of Capt. Keith Stuckless, ready to take on her new role running to the United States from New Brunswick. It was fitting that my father who spent many years on her as chief engineer and my father in law as captain, took her for the last time out of Lewisporte
She is now in Clarenville tied up at Burrys Shipyard where she will undergo maintenance to get ready for her new life.
