After a slight delay, the Ohio St. Bridge was finally able to be raised, although not all the way, to allow the tow to pass under the draw.

The barge's wide beam can be seen here on the swing at Ohio St., clearly showing why the larger tug took the lead to clear the way of ice on the frozen Buffalo River.

Selvick fixed securely in the notch of the Lake Trader. You can see the barge's skegs going down below the waterline. They help keep her following behind a tug when towing in the open lake, like fixed rudders.

The tow well into the Watson Basin of the Buffalo River, just one turn from the Outer Harbor and about to head out onto Lake Erie around 4:30
