MISSISSAGI arrived off of Erie's Buoys 1 and 2 today at around 1030 and turned to back into the North Pier with sand from Thessalon, Ontario. The vessel backed all the way through the channel and the crew reported that the ship was close to scraping bottom in several places. MISSISSAGI docked and began unloading at about noon today. The vessel is, as I write this, preparing to depart upbound for Cleveland to load salt.
