I've worked a bridge construction site so shallow...and the hoe operator so good...he would use the machine to lift the barge enough and push with me (small tug) to get the barge across and then help pull me across.

I could see paddling working.... but ONLY in the most still waters as the speed and side of the bucket being slow and small enough that it would remind me of a kid in a rowboat with only one oar.

But heck...some equipment operators are pretty good....just maybe they will figure out how t put push boats out of business...
