The Razorback Comes Up River- About a Year Ago

Some of our readers have asked how we got the USS Razorback up the Arkansas River since the river is only certified by the Corps of Engineers to be 9 foot in depth. Well, Shane Foraker and crew simply slipped the 394 between two Pine Bluff Sand and Gravel barges that had been lowered in the water. After cradling the Razorback/Muratreis snugly between them, the barges were raised and voila up the river they came. Thanks to Bob Lincoln for this great photo.
