One thing I've noticed about the self-driven barges
is that they frequently are so heavily loaded that
their main decks are awash. Also, I wonder what
the economics are for these mom and pop
operations. The competition must he stiff with so
many of these boats that carry small loads in
comparison to the tows in America. Every river I've
seen in Germany (Rhine, Main, Elbe) has a virtual
non stop parade of these boats. They are very
interesting to observe, for sure.
