W.P. Snyder on the move (updated)

For years, I've thought about going up to Marietta OH to see the old steam-powered towboat W.P. Snyder, which is on display as a museum piece. Now I can wait for it to come down the river. According to an AP story, the Snyder will be towed to South Point OH soon for repairs.

That's another boat Adam and I will have to chase down the river.  Because it's to be repaired at South Point, we should be able to see it from Virginia Point Park at Kenova WV or from various places at Catlettsburg KY.

UPDATE: The Snyder's jurney down the river could begin Wednesday, according to the Marietta Times.
