Not in Kenova but on Kenova (Updated)

Marathon Petroleum christened three towboats today — the Mt Vernon, the Kenova and the Patoka.

All three were purchased from Florida Marine Transporters. I have a lot of notes to go through and a lot of photos to process for the Waterways Journal. I can tell you Marathon put on a pretty good party.

Tomorrow morning, I'll edit this post to include links to coverage from a local newspaper and a couple of TV stations that were there.

Here are a couple of stories from the local media on the christening.

First, one from The Herald-Dispatch of Huntington.

Second, one from WOWK-TV of Charleston-Huntington.

I'll be writing my own story over the weekend to submit to the Waterways Journal.
