IRCA: Marseilles Update
I’ve received word that Marseilles has lifted all width restrictions and have regained the ability to pull cuts in both directions. A helper boat is no longer required to pull cuts.
However, ice couplings are still required and the floating mooring bits are tied up. The lock has a ~23’ drop so please ensure that crews have sufficient/long enough lines to lock with, and communicate with lock staff prior to lockage for mooring instructions.
