Smaller boats, part 1

I was down at the mouth of the Big Sandy River this past weekend, and I saw several of the smaller boats that work the harbor. This entry and the next will have some pictures of them. Today, it's the Chris Arden of McGinnis Inc.

I don't have the Inland River Record in front of me, but I think the Chris Arden was built in 1978 by McGinnis, and it has about 850 horsepower.

This next one is a closer view, taken as a cloud came between us and the sun.

This one is a bit different. It shows depth numbers on the side of a barge. The numbers are aboutto disappear as the barge in the left foreground is pushed forward.

Next: The MAP Runner, the Kyova and the William B.
