M/V Nashville

 One of my favorites. As a newspaper reporter, I rode it in May 1988, I think it was, from the Belleville Locks and Dam down to Kenova, I think it was. David Smith was the captain. David now writes the Old Boat Column for the Waterways Journal.

Back then it was the Valvoline of Ashland Oil. Now it's the Nashville of Marathon Petroleum.

This was a great morning for getting river pictures. There was plenty of light, but overcast skies muted it enough so that there were no shadows and no great disparities between light and dark. Sometimes you want that. Sometimes you don't. On this day it worked out just fine.
