To get to Pike Island locks from sixth boro by water, you need to either “do a Water Horse” or travel thousands of miles around Florida, thru Gulf of Mexico, go up the Mississippi as far as Cairo, etc. Or drive a car west for about six hours, which is what I did. By the way, W. L. H. Moon’s “water horse” was a C-Dory that left from the Elizabeth Marina right across from Howland Hook. Below, watch the mast with radar sweep and searchlight.

It’s Brenda Rose, and yes she did!

And having risen, the throttles gets pushed forward. She sounds like an accelerating locomotive,

pushknees jamming against the barge,

she moves her load just barely through the floodgate structure

and upriver toward Pittsburgh.

Any ideas what the sections of cylindrical vessel might be? And Brenda Rose . . . her homeport and other vitals?
