Good evening at Big Sandy harbor

Last night I got to see a couple of Marathon Petroleum Co. towboats in different angles than I'm used to. First it was the M/V Kentucky, which was pushing a barge loaded with people. To my surprise, it did a 180-degree turn right in front of me.

As the Kentucky was turning, I saw the Marathon coming out of the Big Sandy River pushing an empty barge.

I might put up more pictures later in the week. Some of the ones I got were so good, I need to take my time editing, cropping and fine-tuning them before I post them here.

A couple of weeks ago,I saw the Marathon go up the river and I noticed the starboard pilot house window had what appeared to be duck tape from one corner to the other.Just wonder if there will be problems with the windows on the newer boats.Maybe a piece of rigging broke and hit it..My last Ashland contact retired,and I am curious as to what happen.Maybe you seen it also.
