730-foot vessel 'dead in the water', says Coast Guard.

The Tim S. Dool lost all power about 3 a.m. and is adrift roughly 65 nautical miles northwest of Whitefish Point

The U.S. Coast Guard says a 730-foot long bulk carrier, which lost power and is adrift in Lake Superior, will be towed to port for repairs.

The Tim S. Dool -- which is owned by Algoma Central Corporation — lost all power at about 3 a.m. this morning, said Lieutenant Dan Every, senior investigating officer for Coast Guard Sector Sault Ste. Marie.

It remains adrift about 65 nautical miles northwest of Whitefish Point.

The ship’s crew spent much of the day making repairs on the generators that provide power to the vessel.

“The main engine that drives the propeller is out of service, but they were able to get some generators online. It’s limited, but they at least have lights now,” said Every.

With no means of propulsion, the vessel will be towed to port by Purvis Marine Ltd.'s Anglian Lady tug, which is based in Sault Ste. Marie and is currently on scene.

Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. – The Algoma Central Corp. bulk carrier Tim S. Dool, which lost power and was adrift in Lake Superior Thursday, was towed to Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., Friday, where it was moored the Essar Steel Export Dock. The tugs Anglian Lady, W.I. Scott Purvis and Adanac III were involved in the towing operation.

The Dool lost all power at about 3 a.m. Thursday morning, said Lieutenant Dan Every, senior investigating officer for Coast Guard Sector Sault Ste. Marie. The ship’s crew spent much of the day Thursday making repairs on the generators that provide power to the vessel.

Salvage plans assessed for grounded Roger Blough

Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. – A freighter carrying a load of iron ore pellets from the Twin Ports ran aground Friday in far eastern Lake Superior.

The 858-foot Roger Blough ran aground near the Gros Cap Reefs in Whitefish Bay, about 10 miles west of Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., shortly after 1 p.m. Eastern time and was experiencing some flooding, authorities said. The crew remained on board Friday night but was safe.

“There are reports of flooding in certain tanks of the vessel — none of them which, as of right now, are fuel tanks; they’re just normal ballast water tanks,” said Lt. Creighton Chong of Coast Guard Sector Sault Ste. Marie. “Right now there is no pollution. There is still some flooding that they’re trying to control, but the crew and the Coast Guard members are safe on board.”

The Coast Guard and the ship’s owners — Canadian National Railway’s Duluth-based Great Lakes Fleet — were assessing the situation to determine a course of action, Chong said.

“They’re assessing the rate of flooding … if it’s safe (for the crew) to stay on board,” Chong said. “The Coast Guard is coming up with a plan with the owner of the Roger Blough … a salvage plan to get it off of the rocks, safely.”

A Coast Guard response boat is set to remain on scene throughout the night, authorities said late Friday. The Coast Guard cutter Mobile Bay, a 140-foot icebreaking tug based out of Sturgeon Bay, Wis., has been dispatched to assist in the ongoing response.

The grounding remains under investigation, Chong said, but it apparently happened while the Blough was passing a ship that was stopped.

The Blough, which marine tracking websites indicate was carrying its load of iron ore pellets to Conneaut, Ohio, went aground not far from the Gros Cap Reefs Light. It’s a point when shipping traffic transitions from the open waters of Lake Superior to the smaller channel leading to the Soo Locks.

The grounded freighter is not impeding the movement of other ships, Chong said.

“There’s sufficient room off of the vessel’s south side,” he said.

The charted depth of the water at the reef where the Blough ran aground ranges from about 17 to 24 feet, according to nautical charts. Those charts indicate the shipping channel into Sault Ste. Marie is maintained at a depth of 28 to 30 feet.

The Blough first sailed in 1972. It left Duluth earlier this week with its load of iron ore pellets.

Roger Blough still aground in Whitefish Bay, crew stays aboard

Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. – The 858-foot-long Great Lakes freighter Roger Blough ran hard aground on Gros Cap reef in Whitefish Bay, about 10 miles west of Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Friday at around noon.

The U.S. Coast Guard and the captain of the Blough agreed late Friday that it was safe to let the 24 crewmembers on board stay overnight, said Lt. Creighton Chong, the public affairs officer and chief, Waterways Management Division at Coast Guard Sector Sault Ste. Marie.

There is some flooding but it is under control, added Chong.

The U.S. Coast Guard is assessing the extent of the damage. There is no pollution reported. A salvage plan will eventually be drawn up, which could involve lightering part of her cargo.

The Blough, built in 1972, left Duluth about noon on Thursday with a load of iron ore pellets for Conneaut, Ohio. The vessel is part of the Duluth-based Great Lakes Fleet, which is owned by CN. (Canadian National)

6/5 - Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. – The grounded Roger Blough was freed from a reef in eastern Lake Superior by tugs Saturday morning.

The freighter sailed under its own power to Waiska Bay, east of Whitefish Bay and above the Soo Locks, to be evaluated for repairs and to have its remaining cargo transferred to other vessels. Efforts to lighten the Blough’s full load of iron ore pellets from Duluth began early Friday morning after fleetmate Philip R. Clarke arrived on the scene Thursday afternoon. Another vessel, the Arthur M. Anderson, was enroute Saturday evening and will also take on some of the Blough’s cargo.

The Blough was refloated at 10:45 a.m. with the assistance of the tugs Anglian Lady, W.I. Scott Purvis and Missouri. When the cargo is unloaded, the Blough will head for Bay Shipbuilding Co. in Sturgeon Bay, Wis., for further inspection and repairs.

Die Anglian Lady, zou dat een Belgische sleepboot geweest kunnen zijn. Ze lijkt veel op de voormalige Fighter/Boxer.

Jan,
Prachtig, mooie sleepboot die Hamtun. Persoonlijk natuurlijk, maar mooier dan na de vebouwing. Er is wel flink aanverbouwd. Zal een francjes hebben gekost.
