  1. Well, that was interesting.. Is that what they have been dredging up? Do they have a specific area that they dump it into Superior? Just curious...Penny

      I think I just saw the same tug and barge come in.
      See above for description and photo.
      D.L. Billmaier possibly with Derrick barge H. G. Schwartz

  5. This morning while watching the American Integrity come through the canal I noticed that there was a large ladder mounted to the starboard side of the ship near the stern. Is that a safer more stable way that some ships are now providing for their crews to lower themselves to tie up instead of using a boatswains chair?

  6. The Schwartz has a small work tug called the Hammond Bay.

    1. Thanks Casna!
      I didn't know if the Hammond Bay was repaired after it sank last year.
      The Fairchild is its twin and used to sit on the Army COE dock, but vanished about a year and a half ago...so I was hoping that it was it!

    2. The info re Hammond Bay is from the older article so I don't know about that or the Fairchild. I hope someone can still answer. Wish we could get updates about those things.
