The tug Barbara Andrie and her tank barge arrived on the Saginaw River Monday morning, calling on the Bit-Mat dock in Bay City. Later in the afternoon, the tug Dorothy Ann, with the barge Pathfinder, called on the Bay Aggregates dock, which shares the slip with Bit-Mat. Both vessels worked it out so they could share the slip and unload their cargos.
