Historical: Erie Shipbuilding's First Drydocking

On February 20, 2006, Lakeshore Towing's FLATTOP and DON HENRY moved the BUCKEYE and JOSEPH H. THOMPSON JR. into drydock at Erie Shipbuilding. Not only do BUCKEYE, which went in for conversion to barge LEWIS J. KUBER, and tug JOSEPH H. THOMPSON JR., in for engine replacement, become Erie Shipbuilding's first drydockings, but also become the first vessels to use the drydock in nine years, since the LOUIS R. DESMARAIS was drydocked by Metro Machine in 1997.
