|Some kind of large ship!! Met ship|
about 4 miles downstream from the
Nuclear Power Plant.
|Ship is named Delta Mariner|
|Large ramp on stern would lower|
to load large equipment.
|Browns Ferry Nuclear Power Plant|
constructed 1966-1974. First nuclear
plant for TVA (Tennesse ValleyAuthoriy)
|Large coolers for the power plant.|
|Browns Ferry plant was the largest in|
the world when it was put into operation
in 1974, located on the Tennessee River
in northern Alabama at mile 294..
|Southern Railroad bridge at mile 304.4 has|
to be raised for passage. Normal clearance
is 10 ft. Dream Manor needs 20'.
|Waves on Tennessee River were|
getting rough as storm approached. Turned
port up Lush Creek 1 mi to Alred Marina.
Front can be seen as final ties were made to
dock on end of open T.
|Glad to be tied securely and looking out|
at the storm. Poor visibility would not
have been fun on the main channel.
