Laid up and having scheduled maintenance at Sturgeon Bay.She ran all winter and came in when everyone else was leaving lay-up.
Probably in need of some hull repairs after the ice ordeal.Story: http://maritime-executive.com/article/famous-arthur-m-anderson-finally-reaches-wisconsin
Anderson may never sail again . Soft hull dating back to Fitzgerald. Cost to repower to diesel . Sad .
I concur with Paul A....
I probably missed an earlier explanation, but why is the McCarthy idled?
I asked this question earlier in the week and got this answer. It's in a short term lay-up due to a soft demand and also has a broken loop drive gear box causing extended unloading times. F.E. In Milwaukee
The bridge cam seems to be going down quite a bit compared to the other cams. Can this be corrected? Thank you.
Yes, not sure what is going on with the bridge cam. -- I'll keep a closer eye on it.
Several days ago an incoming ship blew its horn 7 times. Does anyone know what the issue was?
The seven short blasts were an emergency warning to some small craft in it's way as it passed through the canal.
I want to say 9 blasts,,,,,,,I could see the spot light flashing

Ok one last thing, Has the Paul R Tregurtha get a new captain? I know it was Captain Dayton but then Detroits press new or something said Captain Bob Tibaudeau
Capt. Dayton retired in early Aug. 2014. I hope he's enjoying retirement even though I miss his distinctive master's salutes when passing through the ship canal.Lakewood
