With the ladder at the end of Kalex being damaged, they have offered for us to use the barge dock for access to tugs/launches since they anticipate that it is going to be several more months before the ladder is fixed.   If there is a barge there the gangway should be down and you can access across the barge.  If there is no barge there you’ll need to call Kalex (360-673-3900) and ask them to lower the gangway for you.  You will have to go under the conveyor and they have asked that you wear a helmet or hardhat when you do.  They will have a couple hardhats hanging on the railing there for us to use to cross.   Both Foss and Shaver have been notified and should be aware that pilots may want to board there.  Let us know how it goes and if there are any issues.
