Default at Perry St.

They were both there due to the bankruptcy of the company, and were awaiting their next site. In better times, the DQ would be over there temporarily for repairs, as the AQ has been doing recently. But the situation to which you refer was the bankruptcy. Vessels have to pay a daily dockage fee in NOLA and that became an issue when the fees weren't paid for Perry St. The company that had leased that wharf held out for some fees/retribution. By this time, the DQ had moved over to Chattagnooga and then the MQ was towed over into the Harvey Canal, where they told those dock owners it would be only for a matter of months. But of course it ended up being several years...
