The 5,500-ton gas tanker Happy Bear set sail from Bermuda waters yesterday with its cargo of liquid butane after spending several days at Murray’s Anchorage for repairs to its main engine.

The vessel is en route to Morocco from Houston, Texas.

With the help of the US Coast Guard, Bermuda Maritime Operations also had to direct the merchant ship Front Melody to assist the 54ft trawler Armageddon after it ran out of fuel, about 200 miles north of the Island.

Seas this weekend were calm, and the fuel transfer went without hitch. The Armageddon is expected to reach St George’s at about 9pm today.
