Amherst Madison has three small sternwheel towboats that it uses to push barges on the Kanawha River. There's the Laura J, the Lady Lois and the Major. Lately the Major has been tied up at Haddad Riverfront Park in Charleston, W.Va., where workers are using a crane barge to do something or other with the boat docks there.
Tuesday, I posted something on Facebook that I was going to get some pictures of the Major, but I didn't want to be late for a mandatory meeting at work. Capt. David Smith and TV meteorologist Bryan Hughes replied that you can never have too many pictures of the Major. So here are a few pictures I got of the Major before I went into work on Thursday.
