1330 19 AUG 07 St. Genovese, MO (Upper Miss. River), (mm) Mile Marker 126 est. UMR
0315 20 AUG 07 City of Naples, IL (Illinois River) (mm) Mile Marker 66 ILR
Confluence of the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers, Mississippi is Mile Marker 217

As 0315 20 AUG 07 LST 325 average SOG 10.5 mph (average speed over ground). Port of Call: Peoria, Illinois, Highway-74 is located on mile marker 162.8 ILR.

At this speed, the 325 could arrive Peoria in the mid afternoon or early evening (Monday, 20 AUG 07) depending on (heavy) the downriver traffic. The 325 is near Havana (mm 119), Illinois.

Navigation Rules – Inland river rules require up-bounded power-driven vessels to give-way to down-bound traffic. The 325 must give the right-of-way to down-bound traffic…that means she can wait (30 minutes plus for passing barges) at times before moving up river.

Does "All Mariners" include slimy pollywog daughters of snipes who double as SeaBats???

Seriously, MANY thanks for the SitRep. It is very much appreciated and I sincerely hope that you'll share intel as you can. We who are ashore (and often quite a distance away) appreciate being able to visualize where our favorite LST is!
