RESERVE finished unloading at the Mounfort Terminal at 0800 this morning and then backed out of the harbor. The RESERVE, which had sat almost perpendicular to the channel while unloading, backed away from the dock and slowly out of the channel, turning at the outer buoys at 0930 and heading up the lake to Calcite, where she had also loaded her previous cargo. The RESERVE is only the second vessel I've ever seen back out of Erie. In March 2000 the JAMES R. BARKER, departing her layup berth at Metro Machine, backed out of the West Slip and through the channel due to adverse ice conditions on Presque Isle Bay.
