The Triumph's exit was a lot different than it's arrival on Valentine's Day
While there was a lot of national media attention for it's arrival, it's departure drew little attention outside the Gulf Coast
The News 5 chopper caught up with the Triumph shortly after 3 o'clock as it was leaving the Port of Mobile.
As News 5 flew over, and circled it at about 800 feet, the ship steadily picked up speed as it steamed through the muddy waters of the bay.
At this, point it still had 30 miles ahead of it to make it to the open gulf and then on to the Bahamas, where it will be dry docked for more repairs.
While it was in Mobile, it was structurally damaged after it broke its moorings and drifted across the Mobile River during an 80 mile an hour wind storm.
You can see that damage from the air, which was obviously not repaired during the stay here.
As the ship continues on it's way, it passes a buoy tender-- a ship dwarfed by the Triumph's massive size as they pass closely in the narrow channel.
On the decks of the ship we only saw a few of the hundreds of crew members on board, most of them safely inside on their way to their future adventures aboard a ship that will be known as the 'Troubled Triumph' for many, many years to come.
