MANITOWOC Visits; YANKEE Emerges from Drydock

MANITOWOC arrived in Erie at 1330 on Sunday and docked at the Old Ore Dock to unload stone from Cedarville, Michigan. After unloading, MANITOWOC moved over to the Mountfort Terminal to load sand. MANITOWOC shifted to the North Pier to unload at around noon today.

YANKEE was removed from drydock late last week and docked in the West Slip. The tug's refit at Donjon Shipbuilding & Repair continues.

Two jetskiers head out as MANITOWOC enters the channel.
