The Pictures of the Day ..... were sent to us by Capt'n Ramjet from Pool 26 of the Mississippi River, now traveling south in Florida....

 

 

Hello Everyone,

Several walks in the park is the theme here!

Sorry I havenít posted lately. Iíve been having a rough time. It seems parts of the world are unlike pool 26. In pool 26 Respect is given freely yet it is also earned. On the coast or at least in Carrabelle judgment is given out with a vengeance with no respect. Iíve been fighting and struggling to just get us by. I believe as you all know and live by we wear our feelings on our shoulders and share our good with our bad. The Salvation Army gives out good meals here without question. The police that have been sent to check us out have been respectful and honorable. Even giving us free nights stays at the city dock. I'm doing some odd jobs around town and hopefully gaining some respect. Iíve had thoughts of coming back, But Iím not willing to give up that easy! Update you again tomorrow

   St. Louis District - Weekly Navigation Channel Condition

 

 

Updated November 7, 2018

Mississippi River

MILE 343.2 - DRIFT INSIDE OF LOCK CHAMBER (L/D 20)
The USACE reports a significant amount of drift packed inside the auxiliary lock chamber, extending from the bullnose upriver along the river wall. The drift is densely packed in the chamber. The USACE advises that there is not enough room for an assist tug to stay with the tow while working from the half kevel of the port lead barge, as is normally done. The drift is packed to a point where the assist tug will have to back away from the port lead barge, when the tow is still around 120 feet away from the bullnose and to reposition if possible. Also, the assist tug is not able to stage on the up-stream side of the lock chamber due to the amount of drift. This will affect locking times. Maintenance crews will be dispatched to L/D 20 to start debris removal as soon as L/D 17, resumes operation. Towboat operators should be alert for, and abide by, any special instructions that may be issued by the lockmaster. Mariners may contact the lock at (573) 288-3320 or via VHF-FM Channel 14, for assistance
MILE 332.0 - MILE 330.8 - DREDGE OPERATION
Continuing until approximately November 15, 2018, the Dredge GOETZ is conducting dredging operations between approximate Miles 332.0 and 330.8, Hogback Island. Work will be conducted 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. Dredged material will be placed along the left descending side of
the channel and will include both bank line and open water placement. Mariners are requested to contact the Dredge GOETZ via VHF-FM Channel 13, 16 or 82, 30-minutes prior to transiting the area, for passing arrangements. Mariners are urged to transit the area at their slowest safe speed to minimize their wake and proceed with caution after passing arrangements have been made.
MILE 200.8 - L/D LOCKAGE REQUIREMENT
The requirement for all south-bound tows to utilize a helper boat in both the main and auxiliary chambers at Melvin Price L/D, in the vicinity of Mile 200.8, has been lifted. Attached as an enclosure to this LNM, is USACE St. Louis District Notice to Navigation Interests 18-79C, down-bound safety advisory
 

Illinois River
MILE 56.0 - BRIDGE INSPECTION
Florence Highway Drawbridge; Inspections will be conducted from 6:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, using a snooper truck which will extend 10-15 feet below low steel. An onsite workboat will monitor VHF-FM and work will be suspended to allow passing traffic, with a 1hour advance notice.

Lawsuits Focusing On Whether Table Rock Lake Is A 'Navigable Waterway'........

 

On Thursday, a hearing in a federal courtroom in Springfield, Missouri set out to determine several issues in litigation involving the Ride the Ducks boat that sank on Table Rock Lake, claiming the lives of 17 people.

 

One of the main issues is the legal designation of Table Rock Lake, which if it is considered to be a navigable waterway, means that plaintiffs could recover damages if they win in civil lawsuits against the owner of the Ride the Ducks operation, Ripley Entertainment.

 

Ripley Entertainment has cited an 1851 law, the Limits of Liability Act, which restricts damages a vessel owner has to pay out to the value of the vessel.  Ripley Entertainment lawyer, Jeffrey King stated that the vessel's value is zero........
