An Alaska Marine Lines barge, Nana Provider, stuck on a reef off Quadra Island for nearly a week has now been re-floated off the reef early this morning.  The barge was being towed by the US-flagged tug Polar King when it grounded last Saturday night at around 8 p.m. during a voyage from Seattle to Whittier, Alaska. The barge is carrying empty containers and rail cars.  A flotilla comprised of five tugs and three Canadian Coast Guard vessels escorted the barge to a facility north of Campbell River where it will undergo inspection and repairs.
