Luedtke's tug KRISTA S., towing hydraulic dredge barge LUCILLE T., arrived in Erie at 0615 this morning and docked the barge at the Mountfort Terminal. KRISTA S. departed after dropping the barge at the Mountfort Terminal.

KARL E. LUEDTKE, a smaller tug, arrived at 0650 towing DERRICK BOAT 11 and docked at the Mountfort Terminal, ahead of the LUCILLE T.

KRISTA S. returned to port at 0830 this morning towing 600 feet of dredge pipeline, and with assistance from KARL E. LUEDTKE, docked the pipeline at the Mountfort Terminal. The two tugs, barges and pipeline remain there.
