Tug Crosby Leader finally completed refueling at La Plata, Argentina. She was back with her sister Crosby Endeavor at 1000 hrs. on the 24th, which had been holding USS Ranger CVA-61 off Maldonado for 4 days.
The holding had been a real struggle with the very high winds. See track of Assist tug Oriental 1.

A 2nd support Tug arrived on Memorial Day, the 25th as the team of tugs
 maneuvered around "Ranger" for 24 four hours.

The "WIND" had died down to 8 knts from 18 knts. On this day, Uruguay Military Operations displayed
three vessels. They didn't venture beyond Maldonado.

Crosby Endeavor followed the same proceedure as Crosby Leader, Refreshing at Montevideo and
Refueling with same tanker at Port La Plata, Argentina. Notice they travel on exact ship lanes.

On May 27th the assist tug, "Oriental 1" had been wrestling
with the Ranger for 8 days. She was relieved by tug "Matrero".
