M/V Diane B. Siegel

I decided to get a little artsy with this one. It worked, mostly, but there are some parts that need improving.

It was pushing a rare sight on my part of the river: 15 loaded coal barges. Perhaps such tows are now mainly handled by Crounse boats. As usual for Crounse tows, these barges were loaded as deep as they could be, and with the rough river there was plenty of splashing at the head of the tow.

From what I could infer from the boat's movements, the Siegel must have come up the river on Saturday, picked up these loads at  the mouth of the Kanawha and headed back down the river..
