The vessels will be cleaned at Mare Island before they leave from there as a double tow.

I will update this post as soon as I get the dates for the dry docking. The cutters have to leave within 14 days of undocking.
Passed over the Benicia-Martinez Bridge last week. Could see the Iris and Planetree sitting off by themselves. Once they are out it looks like Suisun will be down to four ships. What a difference from the 100+ I saw in 1999.
