(ANOTHER) UPDATE!!!! DRAFT INCREASE to 47′

Just received from CRPPA:
————————————————–

Forwarding on behalf of Safe Nav. 
 
Safe Navigation Recommendations based on most recent USACE survey:
 
-Maximum freshwater draft 47’00”
-One way traffic for 2 vessels over 40’, from 1 mile above to 1 mile below Lower Gap Light
 
AND
 
Separate from the above we are focusing our efforts and available pilots in conjunction with the Bar Pilots to bring in a large number of ships waiting at SW Pass Anchorage “que” in an attempt to resume normal operations.  As such, we will be temporarily halting sailings until we have rested pilots available to service them.  Anchorage space permitting, if we are able to knock out the outside que it will benefit inbound, outbound, and inner river ship movements.
 
Brgds,
 
Nathan Ankersen
Chief Operating Officer
