Many of my friends flew rescue on that Amtrak disaster outside of Mobile, AL back in the early 90s when a tug and row took out a train bridge.

That and the next two incidents on the Miss, caused the huge change in Master of Towing license requirements awhile back.

Tough ship handing sometimes and pure carelessness the others.....many ICW bridge fender in systems wear the scars of "scraping through".
