More from Rising Sun

Here are a few more photos from yesterday's christening of the mv. Hoosier State at Rising Sun, Indiana. First, four from me.

First, the boat decked out in bunting and streamers and such.

Another shot of Adam steering the boat, with lessons from the pilot, first name Joe, last name I didn't get.

After he steered the boat, they gave him a ball cap that says "AEP River Operations" on it. He took it to school today to show it off. Here Adam gets his final few pictures.

Now, four from Adam and his new point-and-shoot camera.

Here's the Hoosier State as seen from the shelter at the top of the Ohio River bank there at the park. This composition was his idea, not mine.

And another view.

Here's the rear of the boat as seen from the pilothouse.

And he took this while we were out on the river. This is river as the head of the boat travels through it.

I told him that if I have a good job next  year and he takes good care of this camera, he can expect a better one next summer.

These are some great pictures. I am glad that you and your son were able to make it to the dedication. I am happy that Adam got the opportunity steer the boat. The next step is to get him behind a tow. I am certain he will make a great steersman one day. My last name is Kincaid. Also wanted to let you know that Adam is pictured in the latest edition of The Waterways Journal Weekly. We just had a crew change yesterday down at Madison, Indiana and a copy of the Journal was in our boat mail. It is VOL. 124 NO. 12 June 21, 2010. Not sure how you go about getting a copy, but it would neat to have. Keep the pictures coming!
