Three at Kenova

I saw these three boats, among others, while I was at Virginia Point Park at Kenova WV this a.m.

The Map Runner taking a barge from the Ohio River up the Big Sandy to the Marathon refinery at  Catlettsburg KY.

The Senator Stennis passing through.

And a Marathon dinner bucket boat moving an empty petroleum products barge to the Kenova WV terminal.

Amazing that every boat is built for the exact purpose it serves. Right down to the height of it and the width of it and the power.

If they ever came up with a new barge profile I guess we would have a new boatbuilding frenzy.
