Bubblehead Has Left The Harbor

The Picture of the Day..... happened yesterday afternoon at Woodland Marina

 Well, after 8 years with the old girl ( that's more than most of my marriages lasted, LoL ) it was time to move on to another owner that will love her as much as I have. She's headed to Cincinnati, 720 miles, and will be the biggest boat in their harbor, on the Ohio river. I'm sure they will continue to bring her back to the glory she deserves
I'll be on the River with INDECISION, for the next few years

Rick Flier



RiverBill says.... Bubblehead was owned by Okie Moore Diving and Salvage

Mississippi River Journeys

87 Year Old Adventurer Paddling The Mississippi River To Reclaim A Record........


On his 87th birthday, Dale Sanders also known as the "Greybeard Adventurer" dipped his oar into the Mississippi River to begin his effort to paddle the length of the Mississippi River.  His goal is to break the world record as the oldest person to make the 2,340 mile journey again.


On June 14th, Sanders started his journey at the Headwaters of the Mississippi in Itasca State Park.  He says that the Mississippi River is one of the most challenging expeditions he has been on, especially the lakes in the upper Mississippi River basin.


Sanders held the record for the oldest person to complete the Mississippi River Source to Sea challenge from 2015 to 2020, breaking the record at 80 years old in 80 days.  Paddler Stan Stark broke that record last year by completing the trip at 81 years old........

Boating Safety

Good Captains Must Maintain Situational Awareness........


As a captain of any vessel, we have to remember to focus on all that is going on around us.  The helm is not the center of a two dimensional circle around the vessel, but rather a center of a "bubble"  A captain also needs to be aware of what is going on above and below the water's surface.


A captain needs to be aware of traffic overtaking from the stern, crossing from port and starboard and traffic and dead ahead, no matter what direction they are going.


Under the water surface lurks plenty of hazards and learning to read the water is crucial.  There may be shallow spots below the keel as well as danger from submerged logs and other debris that can damage the vessel or drive unit.


Don't forget to look up, as the weather forecast and being aware of changing weather conditions can be critical.  It could mean the difference between a pleasant day on the water and a hazardous and miserable ride back to the dock........

Ohio River Near Smithland, Kentucky

Shoaling Causing Groundings ........


The U.S. Coast Guard is advising that their industry partners lower their draft along the Ohio RIver below Smithland, Kentucky following at least three groundings near Mile Marker 926, locally known as the Cumberland Bar.


According to Lieutenant John Nolan, spokesman for the U.S. Coast Guard Marine Safety Unit, Paducah, a vessel was pushing hopper barges loaded with rock when the lead barge ran aground.  Luckily, there was no damage or injuries.  The channel was blocked for approximately an hour before reopening.


Petty Officer Evan Dawson, water management representative for MSU Paducah says that the grounding was caused by shoaling along the river, which is an issue because it is normally low-water season, but there has also been a lack of rainfall........

Lake Of The Ozarks

Iconic Tom Sawyer Paddlewheeler Set To Make A Comeback........


One of the most nostalgic and recognizable boats on the Lake of the Ozarks, the iconic paddlewheeler excursion boat Tom Sawyer is poised to make a comeback.


The Tom Sawyer suddenly sank near the Bagnell Dam in May 2017.  The owner at the time, Iguana Marine Group, relocated the boat to shore, and then put it up for auction two years ago.


808-Docks owner Azzbusta LLC of Gravois Mills had the winning bid for the vessel, and relocated it to their welding shop on the Westside.  A completely new bottom was welded onto the vessel and it underwent some restoration work.  The Tom Sawyer is currently moored just north of the Gravois Mills Bridge, where it awaits it's next phase in life........
