Last week a barge was locking thru Wilson Dam in Florence, AL and someone was asleep at the wheel or controls or both. Had a little booboo on the upstream side of the lock. Gate was snagged and destroyed some of the workings. Lock closed until....???? for repairs. It was a BP Oil barge too. (Skippered by former Exxon employees
Not best photos, sorry, but not my doing.
For those of you that are not familiar with Wilson Lock; it is one of the largest single lift locks in the world.
