M/V O. Nelson Jones undergoing repairs

 I saw this beauty ...

... yesterday when I was at the Amherst Madison marine repair fleet at Gallipolis, Ohio, working on a freelance article for a publication. As I told one of the people I was with, when you get the chance to be this close to a classic, you get pictures.

The sky was cloudless and it was late afternoon, meaning the sun was brutal as far as lighting goes, but I did what I could.

I don't care what anyone says, this is a beautiful boat. I like how the Amherst paint scheme sort of mimics the old Ohio River Co. scheme. Amherst uses gray where Ohio River Co used dark green, but it works pretty good.
