The second of six deck barges being built at Erie Shipbuilding, the PAV 102, was towed out of drydock by Lakeshore Towing's tug FLATTOP and towboat DON HENRY at around 4:30 this afternoon. FLATTOP and DON HENRY moved the barge to the West Slip and secured it in the same position that PAV 101 had been moored in until it departed under tow of HERBERT P. BRAKE earlier this week.
