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.

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.

Dennis O'Hara said...

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?

Dennis O'Hara said...

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

Tim Fink said...

I want to say 9 blasts,,,,,,,I could see the spot light flashing

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.

Anderson may never sail again . Soft hull dating back to Fitzgerald. Cost to repower to diesel . Sad .
