2/19 - Algomarine in So Chicago - Tom Milton
Algomarine, Monday evening, as she was being assisted by the GLT tug South Carolina docking in a very stiff crosswind (note ship's flag) at the 92nd street salt dock on the Calumet River. It was about 20 minutes before they could get lines ashore into the stiff wind.
One of the "G" tug captains said that the Algomarine was not going to discharge her salt cargo at this dock, but was actually awaiting repairs to bridge 5 before being towed another hour up river. He also mentioned that the salt boats plan to keep running through lay up.
