Thanks everyone for your great comments. I've never had a 1000 hit photo. It's getting close at 929.

Love watching these barges go by and checking out their cargo and how it's loaded.

Hi jadran. The barge ALASKA TRADER has been going by here for at least 4 years. It has recently been repainted.

an interessting video can be found here :
Mostly everything is handled by big forklifts

Perhaps the buses lifted off the flats, which have provided the corner-based loading spreads in relation to the containers beneath?

Moin, loaded / discharged by container crane ? Only to a certain extend. On several flats the payload is longer / wider than the flat itself. Would be interessting to see how the toplayer ant the aft end was loaded / discharged

Nice cargo. Buses are stowed on 40ft-Flats (platforms).
Handable with container-bridges (or cranes).
Regards Peter

Interesting barge,, must by newly built ?? has the 'bow' shape & 'stern' shape i.e. overall hull shape of a SHIP !!

The (apparently) fewer coming south are perhaps out-of-service, returning to base?

This barge is carrying school buses for the cruise ship land tours in Alaska. Interesting that this barge is carrying them north while passing the barge STIKINE PROVIDER, carrying school buses south from Alaska.
