I think we sucked a log or a bouy into it, the metal kortnozzel around the prop is great for thrust in deep water but in the shallow it acts like a vacuum.
I see that barge as well. I run the river between Chillicothe and Henry quite a bit. Yesterday we ran up to Spring Valley.

I have an 07 TT 197. I'll be on the lookout for you.

Late afternoon ride with the wife. Watched an awesome lightning storm in the clouds with no thunder. Pretty cool picture of the clouds with a hole in it.

My company moved me to West Virginia 8 years ago. This is still one of my all time favorites. I took this a few years ago to show the one-stop shopping options I have! Where else can you get your bait AND your fruit baskets??

Sure it's not a bait fruit basket? Sounds delicious
