Currently I have the following two vessels which measure over 700’ LOA and are located above MM 81.0 AHOP.
  • KATAGALAN WISDOM III, LOA – 787′, Draft 44’, Current Location – MM 146.18
  • HIROSHIMA STAR, LOA – 751’, Draft 45’, Current Location – MM 152.75
The NOBRA & CRPPA Pilots would like to move these vessels to an anchorage below MM 81.0 BEFORE Revetment Operations began @ 0600 Monday and those vessels are restricted to night transit only.
Agents for the above two vessels please contact pilot dispatch to bring those vessels downriver as soon as possible.
Any agent that has a vessel NOT listed above which is over 700’ LOA and is ready to sail, or can sail tomorrow; please send the following to me and NOBRA & CRPPA dispatch:
  • Vessel Name:
  • LOA:
  • Draft:
  • Current Location:
Thank you for your attention.
