Mississippi River At Granite City, Illinois

    New Jobs Coming After Port Expansion........


Plenty of new jobs will be available in the Metro East, with the groundbreaking on the next phase of the Central Port in Granite City, Illinois.  Over the next year, a parcel of land adjacent to the port will be transformed into a harbor.  Currently, the south harbor terminal is being constructed.  When complete, it will allow cargo to be transferred from rail to truck to barge.  The terminal will mainly be used to transport corn and soybeans........

Blessing of the Fleet Committee

    Meeting of 10/18/2014 highlights:

· Theme for 2015 will be "Gilligan's Island". Side note - the cast just celebrated its 50th anniversary. 1st episode aired September 26th, 1964. Several other great themes were suggested and will probably come up again in the future.

· Benefit for the Blessing of the Fleet will be Saturday June 20th, 2015, tentative location is Yacht Club of St. Louis. Format, including the "Great Ball Splash and Grab" will be similar.

· Blessing of the Fleet / Parade of Boats will be the third Saturday in July as is custom, actual date is Saturday July 18th, 2015. Considerable discussion about pushing the date back due to floods but the bottom line is we can push it back but if we set it too late in the year that option is gone. Parade routes will remain the same. Judges will be on the deck at Palisades Yacht Club, awards will be presented at the LaRosa Cabana Bar / My River Home Marina.

· Karen Brncic and Maureen Absolon will be working on getting together 8 "Marina Prize Packages" to be given to each winner in the Blessing of the Fleet. So, if you are or know any marina owners point them towards Karen or Maureen. This will be in addition to the plaques traditionally given to the winners. Discussion centered on weekend dock rental prizes or their equivalent. We will probably do a random drawing and allow each winner to pick a prize package rather than set a particular one to a specific class. Similar to how the prizes are awarded at the "Great Ball Splash and Grab".

· Maureen will again be spearheading the gathering of prizes for the "Great Ball Splash and Grab" at the Benefit.

· Poster design contest. In the next couple of weeks we will be putting out a press release and a big part of it will be a whole new way to come up with the annual poster design. We will have an open competition where the public can submit their designs, the winning design will get some sort of VIP treatment the day of the Blessing and the poster will have the designer's name on it. Still working on details but this will be fun. Dave Stolze, who prints the posters at no charge, usually had his graphics guy do them. He left the company a few years back and I've been doing them just so we could have them ready for the St. Louis Boat Show. This year the Boat Show starts later (March 4th) so we will have time to do this and get them printed and distributed.

· Donation to the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rivers. This year we were able to donate to the ongoing planned renovations to the statue thanks to all our supporters and those that participated in the Benefit for the Blessing. Without the statue there would be no Blessing of the Fleet. This is something we can all be proud of.

Thanks to all,
Darryll Weil

President, Blessing of the Fleet Inc

News Release From BoatUS

True or False? Take the Boat Winterizing Quiz

LEXANDRIA, VA, October 20, 2014 – You’re putting the boat away for winter. So what half-truth, wive’s tale or tall story have you heard about winterizing a recreational boat? Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) helps to set the record straight.

Ethanol (E10) fuel and engines: If a boat has a built-in gas tank, it’s recommended to leave the tank as full as possible over the winter with a smidgen of room for fuel expansion.

TRUE: Leaving the tank nearly full limits the amount of moisture that can potentially condense inside on the tank’s walls as outside temperatures fluctuate, preventing phase separation of ethanol (E10) fuel. Note one caveat: If your boat is stored in a rack system or indoor storage, check with the marina. They may require you to empty the tank to minimize the risk of fire. TIP: Never plug a fuel vent. Ever.

Ethanol and phase separation: Come springtime, any phase-separated gasoline in the tank can be fixed by adding a fuel stabilizer or additive.

FALSE: Once gasoline phase separates, that’s it. Kaput. End of story. The only solution is to have a pro remove the contaminated fuel and water mixture and start anew -- a difficult, hazardous and costly task for boats with built-in fuel tanks. However, it’s critical to use a fuel stabilizer each fall to help keep fuel fresh over the winter, keep corrosion at bay and to help prevent the onset of phase separation. TIP: Put the stabilizer in before you nearly fill the tank for its long winter nap. This will allow stabilizer to fully course through the fuel system as you run the engine when filling with anti-freeze.

Freeze damage: Because it’s cold up there, BoatUS insurance claims for engine block freezing come from northern climates.

FALSE: While there are quite a few claims from the colder climates, many boat insurance freeze damage claims also come from southern, temperate states hit by an unexpected freeze or when space heaters fail due to sudden storm power loss. In the northern climes, storm power outages also are to blame for engine block freeze related claims, however, both areas of the country have their fair share of winter freeze claims due to one reason: the failure to follow winterizing procedures. TIP: Don’t let your buddy do the job – it’s a common refrain BoatUS claims staff hears every spring after a cracked block is discovered. Having your marina winterize your boat and systems may offer better protection if there is an issue come springtime. Another option is adding ice and freeze insurance to your boat insurance – most insurers do not charge much for it, but there are deadlines to purchase (BoatUS offers it for as little as $25 to its insured members until October 30).

Space Heaters: It’s okay to “winterize” the boat by leaving a space heater running onboard.

FALSE: In addition to the sudden power outage problem, every winter BoatUS sees fires from heaters, plugs and cords, and from heaters that were left running on unattended boats. Unless you live in Hawaii or the Florida Keys, BoatUS recommends winterizing your engine if you will be laying up the boat for even a few weeks to lessen the chances of sudden freeze damage. TIP: Save time and make winterizing easier by installing an engine flushing system -- typically a simple valve with a connection for a garden hose along with an anti-freeze pick-up hose/strainer -- on your engine.

US Coast Guard News Release

     UPDATE 4: Coast Guard restricting vessel traffic on Chicago River to allow for salvage of sunken barge


All cargo has been removed from the sunken barge in the Chicago River between the Lake and Randolph Street bridges and divers are currently in the water to conduct a survey of the barge's hull.

The barge has been secured so that a 50-foot clearance can allow for vessel traffic to transit.

Once the divers complete their survey, the company intends to formulate a salvage plan to either move the barge to another location or lift it out of the water.

Coast Guard assets are on scene to monitor vessel traffic while divers are in the water.

There are no Coast Guard images or videos available for this case.

Personnel from Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit Chicago have coordinated waterways management controls over the Chicago River since the barge broke free from its mooring Friday afternoon and sank in the river.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Lake Michigan, in Milwaukee, learned of the incident about 1:15 p.m., Friday. The barge was loaded with 750 yards of clay dirt. No injuries or pollution are reported.

Coast Guard Sector Lake Michigan is broadcasting a notice to mariners over VHF-FM channel 16.

For more information, contact the Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit duty officer at 630-336-0281.

     Gateway Arch Inspection Has Been Delayed........


On Monday, crews were attempting to assess the staining on the upper face of the Gateway Arch, however, the sunshine caused temperatures to skyrocket on the metal skin, forcing the workers to cancel their plans.  Last week, they were able to rappel down the outer top of the arch to look around the stainless steel surface.  Monday's plans involved swinging from ropes to examining the underside of the Arch.  High winds had delayed that operation........
