The 2015 James River Batteau Festival is almost ready to go!
Last minute patching of holes with oakum, loading gear and boxes and of course hugs and handshakes all around! Many old friends happy to see one another once again!
The crew of the Batteau Margaret Stevens were very excited as the new crew put the new batteau into the mighty James River for the very first time!
The evening air was hot and muggy. Looks like a hot week to come! See you all at Percival’s Island Saturday Morning!
