I have never seen a towboat come in under the bridge so near the Louisiana side headed north before. He came very close to the buoy and thinking that he should have been on the other side of it. As soon as he passed the buoy he pushed outward towards the middle of the river to get ready for the turn in the bend. This is what you call cover top hopper barges per Dennis who rode this towboat under the name of Navigator up and down the Mighty Mississippi.
Pushing his empty cargo of containers!
A little tugboat was following behind.
