Traffic southbound outside Louisville included Marge McFarlin with a mixed set of barges. Length of the tow might be limited by the length of the locks.

Without doing any checking right now, I’m wondering whether wheelhouse height is variable as with Erie Canal tugs like Crow and K-Sea’s Odin, which’ll show up if you use my search box.

I’m also wondering about size of a crew on Marge McFarlin and similar boats, given tug length. Are there passenger berths, long hitches? Notice the coal load on the barge directly forward the tug.

Downtown Louisville has the steam-powered Belle. More on her later. I wish the good folks at Bellarmine College would update the visitors plaque for the next 150 years.
