Farewell Friesland

The Dutch naval patrol ship visiting at the south side of Pier 88 made an early departure with an assist from a McCallister tug. By the end of the day she was motoring east at 15 knots, signaling a return to the Netherlands on AIS after spending the past 3 months on patrol in the Dutch Antilles.

The Norwegian Gem was back from a 5-day trip to Bermuda and tied up on the north side of Pier 88. She is scheduled to head down to the Caribbean this afternoon. There seems to be some dredging and other work happening around the terminal this week.
