  2. Thank you for this! I can't wait to see the footage of the tugs working together to get it dislodged.

  5. Folks, when the river and flow-age is up, maneuvering these boats becomes much more challenging. I can't speak for this captain but in the past and after heavy rains on the St Louis, this has happened with other boats.

    1. That's something we don't realize, it does make a lot of sense. Thank you for your reply.

  6. Yup, it happens...with all our technology, Mother Nature still has her ways...that's why we still need tugs and captains and crews. Here's a link to a story about the Paul Tregurtha grounding in 2014, REALLY close to shore.
