The USCGC Bristol Bay was pushing a barge with crane atop up to the crash site at about 0900 today. I'm watching her hover over the crash site on the AIS and hopefully get back home to take a shot of the wreck on deck when she passes by our house. BTW- The crash site is perhaps 5 miles north of the Blue Water Bridges and plainly in sight from my place located in Port Huron just above buoys 1 and 2.
