BBC XINGANG, after loading since Sunday afternoon, got underway and departed Erie at 0600 this morning bound for Mozambique with GE locomotives.

MANITOWOC arrived in Erie shortly after midnight with stone from Cedarville and spent the early morning hours unloading at the Old Ore Dock before moving to the Mountfort Terminal to load sand at around 0930. The ship will move to the North Pier at around 0900 on Friday morning to unload the first cargo for beach replenishment.

The sun rises over the buoys.

Clearing Erie for Mozambique. The vessel is open for cargos in Mozambique beginning June 25, meaning the ship will be unloaded by that date.
