2017 Season Begins! Saginaw River Passage - March 30th

On Thursday afternoon, and without fanfare or celebration, the 2017 commercial shipping season began on the Saginaw River, with the arrival of the tug Spartan, and her tank barge, Spartan II. The pair called on the Port Fisher dock in Bay City, arriving on March 30th and starting the season 11 days later than last year.
