Saginaw River Passages - April 26th

Friday morning saw the Algoway finally arriving at the North Star dock in Essexville to unload potash.  Originally scheduled to open the season on the Saginaw River over a week ago, Algoway had been delayed by the abnormally strong current.  She departed the North Star dock Friday evening, stern first, and with the assistance of the G-tugs Superior and Wyoming.  It is rare to see a G-tug on the Saginaw River and even rarer, two, but with the conditions and boats needing assistance, they are here to help.  The Superior and Wyoming also assisted the American Integrity depart Consumers Energy on Thursday.
