The Ocean Tundra remained on standby while she headed towards the Grondines wharf, where the boxship will be inspected in deep water. Damage, however, seemed to be minimal.

If the ship passes the inspection, it might be able to resume its journey to Quebec, where a thorough examination could take place if necessary.
