Another lake freighter has made an unexpected stop in Erie for repairs. The 1,000 foot Presque Isle is now tied up at Erie Sand and Gravel. Crews spent today putting a coffer dam in place so water can be pumped out, and repair crews can get underneath the ship.
It is not known how long the repairs will take.
Just last week, a large Canadian ship arrived at DonJon Shipbuilding for rudder repairs.
