Saturday night Queen Mary 2 diverts and rushes to the aid of a small craft that lost power and was taking on water off the coast of Maine. In cold and windy conditions Queen Mary 2 stays with vessel until 4am until Canadian Coast Guard Arrives. Happy Ending and Queen Mary 2 will arrive Halifax 6 hours late.
As Halifax was her second of 2 ports it appears The Commodore decided they could stay later and he can make up the time, which he's gotten quite good at lately.
The 345-metre Queen Mary 2, which rises more than 60 metres above the waterline, was the closest ship to receive the rescue centre's general distress call and reached the pleasure craft at about 12:45 a.m. AT.
The boat eventually regained power and the Queen Mary 2 was not needed.
Kudos to Commodore Warner! He is The Man!!!
Go Queen Mary 2!!
