It surprises me sometimes what titles I’ve not re-used. This blog has little grand design; I choose to let to drift serendipitously according to what I see or what you choose to share, and I am grateful to you all for sending along photos and suggestions. Rock Juice the title came out of a conversation some time back with one of you; thanks and I think you know who you are. Here was the first in the series.
Diane B pushes a load of it in John Blanche.
Magothy . . . and . . .

Five years ago I did this post about barge names. Here are some bows I’ve looked at recently, including this one that speaks to winter in the sixth boro. When I started looking up vintage, I was surprised. RTC 61 launched from Rhode Island in Sept. 2010.
RTC 103, same provenance, June 2009.
RTC 502, Texas, March 1976. Notice the Vane barge with yellow trim between RTC 502 and the red ship?
Coincidentally, Magothy is pushing Doubleskin 502, July 2008 out of Jeffersonville, Indiana.
DBL 140 . . Wisconsin December 1999.
The hull looks different full v. empty.
Scrap scow SMM 203 . . . I have no clue.
