The M/T Nanny, which ran aground in the eastern approach to the Simpson Strait near Gjoa Haven, Nunavut Sept. 1, was successfully refloated early on the morning of Sept. 15.  The vessel is seen here with the Canadian Coast Guard Ship Henry Larsen, which has been monitoring the situation along with the Coast Guard's Environmental Response personnel. The refloating effort, which began on Sept. 13, involved the transfer of fuel off the M/T Nanny and onto another Woodward’s ship, the M/T Tuvaq.  Lightering a ship reduces the ship’s weight, allowing it to refloat.
