Late afternoon at Big Sandy harbor

The William B leaving the Ohio and heading up the Big Sandy River.

The Ingram boats are the James E. Anderson, the James Paul Ayers and the Ocie Clark. I didn’t get a good ID on the smaller one next to the Anderson. The Ozzie was nearby, as was the Dorothy Lee.

And a pair of Marathon boats were waiting there at Catlettsburg. I think the Paul G. Blazer was up the river at the terminal at Kenova.

Coming soon:

Gone But Not Forgotten, Part 1: Ashland Oil marine operations

Most of the first installment is written. I just need to find some pictures that I have taken over the years.

I really like this shot of the Marathon boats at Catlettsburg!

I love reading your blog. I grew up (1954-1960) in West Huntington, a block from the levee. As a child I spent many an afternoon on the levee watching the ships on the Ohio. Thank you for the great pictures.
