W.P. Snyder Jr. heading home

I've been told via a network of people on Facebook that the old steamboat W.P. Snyder Jr. left the Amherst repair yard at Point Pleasant, W.Va., around 10 o'clock last night for its trip home to Marietta, Ohio.

According to this story from WTAP-TV, the old boat should arrive in Marietta around 10 a.m. Thursday.

The Snyder is being pushed upriver by another old classic, the J.S. Lewis.

I don't know how fast the Lewis is traveling, but as of 6 a.m. it had not shown up on the lock report for the Racine Locks and Dam
