Kirby flotilla heading north

This afternoon the M/V City of Redwood passed Huntington WV pushing three of 15 boats Kirby Inland Marine sold to Ohio River Salvage of Pittsburgh. One flotilla of nine boats has already arrived in Pittsburgh. The one seen today is one of two three-boat flotillas also headed north.

The City of Redwood was pushing two barges in addition to the three boats. The boats were on the starboard side of the barges. So, if you want to get the best look as the flotilla heads upriver, you'll need to be on a bridge or on the West Virginia side of the river.

You'll need to be careful, though. The river is up, and a lot of good shooting locations probably are under water. I know they are here.
