mv MOL Emissary - January 2015

On 7th January I boarded MOL Emissary at Swanson Dock to prepare for a compass adjustment after departure the next morning. I spent overnight on board and we sailed at 0700 on the 8th. The adjustment went well despite heavy mist (despite the heat) and dozens of small fishing craft in the  bay. I disembarked at 1115 with the pilot off Queenscliff.
