Roger W. Keeney passing Huntington

Adam and I had to be in Huntington late this afternoon, so we went down to Harris Riverfront Park to see if there was anything to see. As it turns out, the Roger  W. Keeney was about to go under the 6th Street bridge, so we got some photos of it going by, including some of the boat passing by while people fished from the shore.

At Big Sandy Harbor

The last time I noticed the R.H. Beymer, it was helping the Lee Synnott push 29 barges up the Ohio River from Huntington to around Point Pleasant. Today Adam and I saw it coming out of the Big Sandy River right as we were driving into Virginia Point Park. It turned up the Ohio with some empties that I assume were going to 311 fleet.

And we saw the Marathon heading downriver with a full load of petroleum products.

This one was taken at the Catlettsburg boat ramp, where the view was better.
