Mothers’ Day Improvement

Conditions improved steadily over the course of Mothers’ Day after the drenching of the past few days. The morning saw three AT/Bs at anchor in the river: the Mako and Haggerty Girls remain for a second day, and the Jacksonville arrived in the early hours of the morning from Port Jefferson and anchored near Grant’s Tomb. By the end of the day, Jacksonville had moved down to the Bayway terminal for a new cargo but Mako and Haggerty Girls remained. A number of tankers and hopper barges moved through over the course of the day.
