Jan. 22

Dylan Cooper, a pusher tug and fuel barge, arrived in Searsport from Saint John, New Brunswick, and delivered gasoline. It departed Jan. 23 for Providence, R.I., but was forced to seek refuge in Rockland Harbor because of an impending forecast of high winds and 10-foot seas. Capt. Adam Philbrook of the Penobscot Bay and River Pilots Association said the problem wasn't that the boat and barge couldn't make way. Rather, the conditions made it impossible to get the local pilot off the tug before it left the bay, he said. It remained in Rockland until Jan. 25 before continuing south.
