Contrary to what everyone had assumed, including us, the MOL Comfort is not being towed stern first.  (facepalm)

Images just sent to us this morning by Haldane van Horen, taken by his shipmate Al Malone, who happened to pass by the MOL Comfort on June 29th, confirm this.

Images were taken at a CPA of about 3.5 miles and Mr. van Horen notes that the tow was traveling at a speed of about 2 knots.

At that speed, they’ll reach Salalah, Oman (843 nautical miles away) in roughly 18 days (assuming that’s where they are going)…
