A cargo ship that has been stuck in the Delaware River since April because of needed repairs and owners who could not pay for them is poised to set sail next week.

The former Nikol H has a new name, Nicolina, as well as a new crew and new owners. A federal lawsuit that had kept the vessel here has been settled.

To celebrate, the Seamen’s Church Institute, which regularly greets seafarers in ports along the Delaware, provided lunch and a festive farewell Wednesday for the 20 new Filipino crew members.
