  1. Worked on the Rivtow Hercules on the west coast, basically the equivalent of this barge. Takes awhile for it to list over and dump but when it does its one hell of a ride. Its an amazing thing to see, especially if the barge leaves the water.

  2. Here is a Slow Motion Video of the Log Dump https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5MvNNie_lQ
