Smaller boats

I don't know how many small boats there are compared to the big ones, and I don't know how many people work on them compared to the big ones. All I know is that they're out there doing work, too, even if they're not exactly the boats that people who live on shore think about or share pictures of.

Last Friday, I saw the Taylor Renee come out of the Big Sandy pushing six loads of coal. The engine was running pretty loud, and it was kicking up quite a wake as it headed down the river. Where it was going I don't know.

I assume this boat doesn't travel far from South Point, Ohio, but I could be wrong. I've been wrong before.
