Going under the Ironton-Russell highway bridge and with only one barge she was making good time.

The NOAA database indicates that the Pocahontas was built by the Ashland Drydocking Co. in 1979. She's 56' in length, 6.2' depth, 21' in breadth. The boat's home port is Wheelersburg, OH and she's owned by the Norfolk and Western Railway Co.
