The John J. Carrick

My next ship of the night was the John J. Carrick. Well, technically she's a barge and a tug but from a distance I couldn't really tell. She wasn't listed on the boatnerd list for tonight, so she was a bit of a surprise for me.
I don't have many details on her except that she is owned by the McAshphalt Marine Transportation Company.

She is 407 feet long and can carry 11,613 tons of cargo.
This is probably one of the nicer looking barge conversions I've seen. I couldn't even tell she was a tug and barge until she was right on top of me.

Heading down the Detroit River.
