Pages of History: Barge nearly lost at sea

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, January 1955:

Barge 14, loaded with 1,100,000 gallons of petroleum products, was a near sea casualty yesterday when its heavy towing bridle attached to the tug Sea Fox became fouled on a rock and broke at the entrance to Crescent Harbor.

Later the tug was able to tow it again to sea, where it was to await calming weather and assistance of the harbor boat Del Norte to effect an entrance and dock, it was reported by Oils Terminal manager Vince Hills.
