A friend?

Today I saw a boat heading down the Ohio River, so I went up on the 6th Street bridge at downtown Huntington, W.Va., to get a few photos. I was glad to see it was the Steven J. Mason of Ingram Barge. That's a favorite of Adam and mine, as it's a former turtleneck boat that was rebuilt as a more conventional one. Plus we know a guy who works on it.

Here it is coming down the Ohio ...

And as it's about to go under the bridge ...

At the last second, I notice a guy outside the pilothouse waving at me. It might have been Adam's friend Mark, a mate on the boat.

With this resolution, it's hard to tell. We'll have to find out in a few days.
