1/26 - Erie lay up vessels - Brian Wroblewski, Jr.

Roger Blough at the Old Ore Dock slip for winter lay-up. Note the storm guards are rigged on the ship's railings for her transit down the lake to the yard.

Starboard side. She just about took up all the good water in the slip. The ship is not up against the dock face, possibly due to the difficulty the Neah Bay had flushing out the ice when they came in last week.

The short shuttle boom for ore unloading has been deployed over the Port side to facilitate some sort of repair work at the shipyard.

Blough is seen from a nearby overlook dwarfing the smaller J.S. St. John at the head end of the slip.

Stern shot of the 1,000 footer Presque Isle. The tug section is detached from her barge and there is a large yard crane nearby.
