The Spartan/Spartan II

So the next vessel I saw on the River was a tug and barge.
 The tug is the Spartan which was born in Port Arthur, TX in 1969.  She is operated by Andrie out of Muskegon, MI.
 She is paired with the 407 foot long barge Spartan II which was built in Wisconsin.
 I kind of like the black and blue color scheme.
 It almost looks like another tug is pushing the tug which is on the barge.
 But I guess that's not the case.
Not sure where she was headed yesterday though.

I tried to get the barge pictures but they didn't turn out as well.
