Last summer I wrote about the fate of a frequent Erie visitor, the steamer RESERVE, which was to be converted to a barge.
The conversion was successful, the RESERVE was renamed JAMES L. KUBER and is now pushed by the tug VICTORY. On Monday the duo arrived in Conneaut on one of their first trips to the lower lakes, loaded with stone from Calcite, Michigan.
