Several ships are expected to arrive for winter work at Donjon Shipbuilding and Repair this month.

Here are the tentative arrival dates for each ship:

  • Tug Defiance/Barge Ashtabula - Jan. 9
  • M/V St. Clair - Jan. 12
  • Tug Dorothy Ann/Barge Pathfinder - Jan. 15
  • Presque Isle - Jan. 15 - Mooring Main Channel
  • Algoma Hansa - Jan. 19
  • Van Ekenvort Tug and Barge - Jan. 23

Weather may impact the actual arrival of each ship.

Some will be berthed at Dobbins Landing.

Ice breaking is expected to begin as early as Wednesday in the eastern portion of Presque Isle Bay and east of Dobbins Landing, but all parts of the bay could be impacted by the work. People are asked to use extreme caution when accessing the bay, especially for recreational purposes.
