Even cooler than the fact that she is self-loading, is that she is also spectacular at unloading.

Half the hull is flooded until the list is sufficient to have the barge surge out from under its load like a 9043 GT cork. Kicks up quite a wake.

We can watch her and/or her sister barges working up the Fraser River near the Port Mann Bridge.
