TREGURTHA Arrives; WITTE 4004 Floated

For the first time in over 17 years, PAUL R. TREGURTHA arrived in Erie today. TREGURTHA arrived at sunrise and docked along the east wall of Donjon Shipbuilding and Repair. The Queen of the Lakes will be drydocked on Monday morning.

Lakeshore Towing's tug FLATTOP and towboat DON HENRY removed the partially-completed WITTE 4004 from drydock at Donjon today, mooring the barge in the West Slip. The new dump scow will be completed after repairs to the TREGURTHA are complete.
