As I’m retired and have nothing else to do with my time, I keep track of some vessels via AIS.
The other day I noticed that the OSG Navigator (an InterCon ATB) was en-route to Brownsville, TX and was only making 4.8 knots. This is about half speed with a loaded Barge. So, she must have been being towed.
So just now I checked the app again and it looks like she’s at Esco Marine. I can’t see any reason for her to be there other than being scrapped.
So, it looks like another 20 people are out of work,
