Saginaw River Passages - May 27th & 28th

The tug Joseph H. Thompson, Jr., and barge Joseph H. Thompson, called on the Saginaw River late Sunday night, headed for the Bay Aggregates dock.  Strong currents in the river from recent rains made the tricky entry into the Bay Aggregates slip event more difficult, making it necessary for the tug Kurt Luedtke to assist the big tug and barge unit into the slip.  Once unloaded, the Thompson - Thompson, Jr. departed Bay Aggregates and were outbound for the bay on Monday.

Tuesday afternoon saw the arrival of the Olive L. Moore - Lewis J. Kuber, who called on the Wirt Stone dock in Bay City.  They remained there during the evening hours.
