Tug VICTORY backed away from her barge in the graving dock at Donjon Shipbuilding & Repair this afternoon at around 1445 hours and moved to the east side of the dock. VICTORY's crew spent about three hours working on the tug's engines before the tug backed away from the graving dock and turned circles in the bay to test her engines.
VICTORY docked at the West Slip, where she remains, at 1755 this afternoon.
VICTORY/JAMES L. KUBER, in for her five-year survey and other repair work, should be departing later this week. OLIVE L. MOORE, which had been in for engine work, should also be departing to return to Toledo later this week. MOORE will pick up her barge, LEWIS J. KUBER, there.
