Three boats from last week

I had to go up to Point Pleasant WV last Thursday. While I was there, I saw three boats worth getting pictures of.

First, the M/V Robert Dean Moore as seen from Henderson WV. This was on the Kanawha River less than a mile from the mouth.

Then the Andy Mullins moving from the Ohio to the Kanawha.

And the Jeffrey A. Raike departing the Gallipolis Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam.

The politicians and the Corps of Engineers say the name is Robert C. Byrd, but I'm old enough and set in my ways enough that it's still the Gallipolis Locks and Dam.
