Here was an unusual pair . . .  within an hour of each other;  Thor Confidence arrived,

escorted by Justine McAllister and


Capt. Brian A. . . .

and a bit later, a very light Thor Courage, escorted by Ava M. McAllister,


headed out for sea.

Built in 2009 and 2008, respectively, the two mostly identical 59000 dwt bulkers are part of the 20-vessel Thoresen fleet.
