Cook Strait Sailed

Cook Strait was brimful of logs by the end of the day on Thursday. Still at the dock mid-afternoon on Friday, but set forth in the evening and is now already west of Sooke. She's headed for Putian, China (1)(2), according to the shiptracker.

Where? (Click for larger image.)

It looks like a Great Circle will still take her through the Aleutians even though Putian is way south, on the Taiwan Strait. I'd love to see what track a ship leaving from southern Oregon would take, but I don't think we know where Timaru Star is anymore, or where she is going. The AIS transponder is apparently turned off, or masked from the public trackers. She could be anywhere.
