Saginaw River Passages - May 9th & 10th

The tug Olive L. Moore and her barge, Lewis J. Kuber, became the first repeat visitor to the Saginaw River this season, calling this time on the Wirt Stone Dock in Bay City on Thursday afternoon.  Once unloaded, the pair turned and were outbound for the lake early Friday morning.  Mississagi was inbound on Friday, calling on the Essexville Wirt Sand & Stone dock.  She had finished unloading by early afternoon, turned off the dock in the Essexville Turning Basin, and was outbound from the Saginaw River into strong northeast winds and rain on the Saginaw Bay.
