Tugboat on the Ohio

A couple of my Facebook friends have told me a tugboat -- yes, a tugboat, not a towboat -- called the Mr. Russell is on the Ohio River. According to the Corps of Engineers' vessel locator, it is somewhere around the Montgomery Locks and Dam, if not in its pool.

That's too far away for me to go today, but if anyone hears of it getting down to the Racine, R.C. Byrd or Greenup pools in the next few days, please let me know in case I miss it.

After years of griping that boats on the Ohio are towboats and not tugboats, I want to see a tug.

It just went by the Big Bend in Leavenworth Indiana up bound! It is a very nice looking Tug!
