Good news for the W.P. Snyder Jr.

The W.P. Snyder Jr. is back home. The last remaining sternwheel towboat arrived at Marietta, Ohio,a  few days ago. We went down to Catlettsburg, Ky., last week when we heard it was to leave its repair dock at 5:30 p.m. It was nowhere in sight, so we went up the river in the hopes it had left early. It hadn't. In fact, it didn't leave the dock until around 9 that night, according to a local TV station.

Some good news in the form of a grant for further repair work was waiting for the Snyder when it got to Marietta. For more, check out this story in the Parkersburg News and Sentinel.
