Water, Water, Everywhere!

Even on the gangway!

As you can see, the water was well over the main gangway. The river crested this morning about 9:00 a.m. At its peak the flow was reported at 215,000 Cubic Feet Per SECOND. That's over 6,500 TONS of water per second (if my math is right).

The good news is, the river is falling. By 4:00, the water was below the gangway again.

Also, our mooring system worked beautifully. Inside the barges, there was no feeling of motion at all. The spar poles and mooring lines held everything rock steady.
