On November 30, the 42 meter long, 179 dwt ro-ro passenger ferry Norcon Galatea ran aground near Pilley’s Island, Newfoundland, Canada. The ferry was en route to Little Bay Islands with six passengers and five vehicles when it ran into issues and went aground. The ferry was able to refloat itself and returned to Pilley’s Island. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released. A few days later reports stated the vessel was allowed to continue its normal operations.
