M.V. Umiavut ( IMO# 8801591) arrives in the snow..

A previously unseen SPLIETHOFF managed ship, The Umiavut (IMO# 8801591), arrived in Narragansett bay this evening (in the middle of a snowstorm) bound for Melville.
It's way to early for the usual migration of boats (from the south to the north) to begin, so I expect that it's a unique situation. Most probably a boat is leaving Melville for points elsewhere but it may also be that something special has arrived to be offloaded at Melville. Hopefully if the weather clears, I can get up to Melville tommorrow and get some pictures. Time will tell.
Here is an interesting link to the ship talking about where the ship runs usually....
