So here's a boat I saw today. As it came down the river, I realized I didn't have any good summertime digital photos of a Dravo Viking class towboat this year. So I figured I needed to get some.

Now I hope this really is a Viking boat. If this is the boat that I think it is, it once was the Steel Rover of Ohio Barge Line.  It was built by Dravo in 1975.

I was sorry I didn't get to see the Omar when it was in the area a few days ago. And it's been a long time since the Erna E. Hunnycutt (the former Omega) was here. I almost got to ride the Omega in its first year on the water. But that's a story for another time.
