Angry Look what my day is consisting of...

My cement barge was enroute to it's destination when the towboat lost control and broke up the tow. 4 barges flipped over and are riding on the lock wall. This is my barge resting on the river bottom on an island.

Default Ohio River?

I saw that your user ID says Kentucky. Were you navigating on the Ohio River by any chance. What part of the river, if so?

We do a lot of boating on the Ohio. Always try to make sure that we give you guys a wide berth - sure to lose a game of chicken with a barge!
