I was a corporate passenger on ACE's roro ship CABOT at the time going to Corner Brook. In order to photograph ASL Sanderling, the captain agreed to to cut through the Sanderling's wake to eliminate the risk of collision so I could get good shots of the ship as she sailed past us. A real nice chance meeting and a fantastic photo opportunity.
