Another big day. Rankin lock at 398.4 with 30' lift. Montgomery lock at 406.7 with 30' lift.
Witten lock at 411.9 with 84' lift. So in about 18 miles the elevation went up 144'. Continued to Aqua Yacht Harbor at mile 448.2 Total miles today was 54 in 8.8 hours. Had to wait 2 1/2 hours at last lock. One tow ahead of us had to lock up first. When that tug went out on top there was another tow coming down river. Had to wait for it to lock down. Exciting to see the tug was pushing a dozen barges loaded with coal. Very little coal is moving on the rivers. It is a shame the coal industry has been crippled so severely. It effects a lot of other folks besides just coal miners.
