M/V Canton

As seen Monday, Sept. 30...

The motor vessel Canton of Marathon Petroleum has just left the Ohio River and turned up into the Kanawha River at Point Pleasant, W.Va. My guess was that it will stop at a tank farm on the Kanawha there at Charleston and perhaps go ahead on up the river to drop off barges at a small terminal in the small town of Hugheston, or perhaps drop a barge at a chemical plant above Charleston.


But I appear to have guessed wrong. The Canton didn't transit the Marmet Locks and Dam, meaning it didn't go to Hugheston. At least not on this trip. That's why I don't play the stock market.
