The 'Baby Leeyn' which had to be towed back to Argentia in late November 2017 left the port in the morning of Jan 9, 2018. It had been tied up there for almost two months after running into trouble off Cape St. Mary's, alliding with the Marine Atlantic dock and causing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage. It later drifted within two nautical miles of land, and the Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve. The Argentia terminal was closed for the season at the time, and there were no injuries reported. Argentia dock repairs should be done before seasonal ferry service to N.S. resumes. The insurance companies for Marine Atlantic and theowners of the 'Baby Leeyn' were working through the details of who was going to pay for the required repairs. The repair work was expected to begin early in t2018 and were to be done before Marine Atlantic resumed sailing out of Argentia in June. The 'Baby Leeyn' was towed into Argentia in 2014, when it was still called 'Jana', after running into engine issues offshore. The vessel changed ownership last fall and was on its way to Romania when its engine failed again.
