A couple of news items

The W.P. Snyder Jr.'s return to Marietta has been pushed back to mid-September after it was found the boat needed more repair work than previously thought. The Marietta Times has the details.


$3 to cross the new Ohio River bridges planned for Louisville? That's the number that bridge planners are working with, although it could change.


I didn't intend for this to happen, but as things worked out Adam and I have seen and photographed several towboats from good angles in the past 24 hours.

Our best photos are of the Capt. Bill Stewart, the Mark S., the Oliver C. Shearer, the Detroit and two unknown boats in the morning fog. We also go photos of the Enid Dibert, the J.B. Kleinpeter, the Mountain State (lightboat) and the Mary Ellen Jones.

I may post some photos here or on Flickr in the next day or two. There are a lot to sort through, plus I have some other obligations to take care of soon.
