Explanation about the U13 Graham Trucking


Just to clarify what happened this morning: J Michael Kelly was returning from a run and as he came towards the dock, the engine cutoff would not shut down the engine.

Quick thinking and reaction by Kelly averted a major disaster. Pulling the boat to the left hard, Mike actually drove the right side of the boat onto the retaining wall.

This damaged the right sponson underneath and bent the rudder. The hatch got stuck also, but he was able to get out after the crew got there. The rudder is being repaired and will hopefully be back on in the morning. The right sponson had minor damage to it. It has since been fixed.
