Laker John B Aird still aground
Sep 14 night laker John B Aird was still aground, reported Great Lakes and Seaway Shipping. Divers were working in the ship throughout Sep 14, underwater welding reported, meaning that vessel’s hull probably, was breached. Still, last AIS in several AIS websites all dated Sep 13, though there’s AIS of the tug engaged in salvage. Maybe AIS is off.
