Laker aground at the same spot she grounded year ago
Self-discharging bulk carrier KAYE E BARKER ran aground at around 0950 LT Apr 24 at Muskegon Lake entrance fairway, Great Lakes, at the same site she ran aground a year earlier. This time, too, the ship was loaded with some 25,000 tons of stone. Laker was refloated at around 1900 LT, safely reached Muskegon and was berthed at around 2115 LT, no leaks reported, probably no damages, too. The ship reportedly, grounded on sandy bottom at position where depth should be safe.
