This is a concrete mixing barge used in the Louisiana bayous where it would be too expensive to truck in ready-mix cement. There is a hopper near the bow where crushed rock or sand would be unloaded from an adjacent barge. The big thing sticking up in the air is a truck ramp which is lowered to permit dry cement trucks to unload. Behind the ramp is the concrete mixing machine. The big poles on each end of the barge are dropped into the riverbed to hold the barge in place
