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.
