<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black;mso-fareast-language:EN-US">Maritime Exchange Member Ship Agents

<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black;mso-fareast-language:EN-US">The Exchange is forwarding the following on behalf of Capt. J. Stuart Griffin, Chairman of the Mariners’ Advisory Committee:

<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black;mso-fareast-language:EN-US">With up to 28 Delaware River Main Channel closures, the Silver Run Project will affect operations for everyone on the river for as long as two months. Vessel traffic will be delayed both ways, and tide-constrained vessels may be more impacted. Considering the highly technical nature of burying the cables 25 feet below the river bottom and the complexity of the entire operation, planning and preparedness are key to mitigate impacts. The Silver Run Project involves the burial of seven power cables in the river bottom across Baker Range and will include up to 28 interruptions of traffic in the main channel.

 .SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM SANDY HOOK NJ TO FENWICK

ISLAND DE AND FOR DELAWARE BAY...

 A cold front will move into the area later this afternoon,

before slowing down as it moves across the area. It will take

until overnight tonight for the front to move offshore. This

front will continue to move to our south over the weekend as high

pressure builds to our north through early next week. The high

will try to nose itself down the east coast, but not fully make

its way into our area. This high will retreat northward by

Wednesday as an area of low pressure lifts northward offshore of

the east coast and a cold front approaches from the west.
