Tugs MANITOU and PATRICIA HOEY are due in Erie tonight at 2330 to prepare to tow the ROGER BLOUGH to Conneaut. Weather permitting the tow will leave at first light on Wednesday morning.
This is the second time the MANITOU has towed a vessel in Erie harbor; in March 2008 the tug moved the MICHIPICOTEN into drydock at Erie Shipbuilding.
The orchestra barge POINT COUNTERPOINT II was moved from East Dobbins Landing to Erie Shipbuilding by Lakeshore Towing on Sunday to permit the VICTORIAN PRINCESS to begin its season cruising from East Dobbins Landing.
