McKEE SONS moved; VICTORY/KUBER to be season opener

A yard crew from Donjon Shipbuilding & Repair moved INVINCIBLE/McKEE SONS back across the West Slip to Donjon at 1530 today. The duo spent the winter on the west side due to TECUMSEH's positioning during winter layup.

McKEE SONS will remain in Erie indefinitely until business on the Great Lakes warrants drydocking her and tug INVINCIBLE and completing work needed for the duo to pass a five-year survey.

VICTORY/JAMES L. KUBER, with stone from Calcite, will open Erie's season with their arrival in Erie at around 0500 Friday.

The starboard anchor on the McKEE SONS is lifted aboard at around 1430 today.

The port anchor is lifted a few minutes later.

Alongside Donjon and bringing the bow wire, which was held on the west side of the slip for control, back aboard.
