    1. 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

  3. The bridge cam seems to be going down quite a bit compared to the other cams. Can this be corrected? Thank you.

  4. Yes, not sure what is going on with the bridge cam. -- I'll keep a closer eye on it.

  5. Several days ago an incoming ship blew its horn 7 times. Does anyone know what the issue was?

  6. The seven short blasts were an emergency warning to some small craft in it's way as it passed through the canal.

    2. 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

    3. 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.
