Saginaw River Passages - June 8th

The tug Olive L. Moore, and her barge, Lewis J. Kuber, called on the Bay Aggregates dock in Bay City early Friday morning.  While the pair were unloading, the tug Leonard M. and barge Huron Spirit arrived, carrying a cargo for the same dock.  The Leonard M.- Huron Spirit put a few lines out at the Lafarge Cement dock across the river from Bay Aggregates to both wait for the Moore-Kuber to depart and to allow the YM Saturn to proceed outbound from the Port Fisher Fertilizer dock, where she had unloaded overnight.  The YM Saturn had no difficulty turning in the Essexville basin, plus the tug Manitou was standing by to assist if needed.  The YM Saturn and Olive L. Moore  were outbound from the Saginaw River and headed for the lake on Friday.  The Leonard M. - Huron Spirit was outbound early Saturday morning.  Sunday morning saw the return of the Moore-Kuber, this time with a split cargo for the Bay City and Saginaw Wirt Stone Docks.  The pair were outbound later in the day.  Manitou remained at the Lafarge Cement dock in Essexville to assist the tanker Harbour Feature when she arrives, also to unload at the Port Fisher Fertilizer Dock.
