    Default The BECKY departs Marietta

    The Marietta Times reports that the BECKY THATCHER departed for Pittsburgh shortly after 11:00 this morning. Accompanying photos show the Harmar Bridge being turned and the BECKY (with her stack tops removed and lying on the roof) being pushed out of the Muskingum into the Ohio. More is to follow in tomorrow's edition.

    Bon Voyage Becky!

    BECKY Photos from Years Gone By:
    (1) Harmar Bridge and stern of Becky - September 13, 1980.
    (2) A view across the Muskingum - 1992
    (3) TWO grand ladies of the river - squint your eyes and you'll see the DELTA QUEEN in the distance, out in the Ohio, preparing to land at Marietta with calliope heralding her arrival.
