Just received from BAR Pilot President Captain Michael Miller:
Good morning! FYI ship with 41’ hit hard at HOP in the only lane with good water. (You) may want to advise vessels loading upriver to be cautious loading max draft right now. Will visit with pilots on station later this morning and update.
Captain Miller went on to say that he has no hint of any further draft reduction at this time.
Updates will be provided as received.
