Twins today, but as with any twins, one will be deemed older. Do you know which?

Genesis Vigilant used to be called Michigan Service.  Launched in 1981, she’s 99′ x 34′ and propelled by 3000 hp.  The barge GM8001 is 348′ x 75′.

Years ago, i errorneously assumed she was an ATB.

This barge is slightly shorter, narrower and about a decade newer. 

GM 6506 is being towed by Genesis Victory

same dimensions as Vigilant and slightly newer, although still from 1981.  Genesis Victory used to be Huron Service.
