M/V Big Eddie passes Huntington, part 1

Like its sister boat, the M/V Mr. Big Eddie was pushing some pretty big parts for the Shell ethane cracker under construction at Monaca, Pa. Unlike the Mister Mac's load, though this one was one large unit.

I got several decent shots, but they need to be edited. Between family stuff today and a combination of summer cold and allergies (I think), I'm out of energy tonight.

For people in my part of the Ohio Valley, based on the Mr. Big Eddie's time from leaving the Greenup Locks and Dam until it passed Huntington, the boat should arrive at the Gallipolis Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam around 3:30 or 4 a.m. Monday and pass Gallipolis itself around sunrise. But those are estimates that could be off significantly.

UPDATE: This is a good reason why you should not edit when you're sick (literally) and (physically) tired. The boat's name is the Big Eddie, not the Mr. Eddie. Sorry about that.
