That was the scene yesterday when Rick Smith (Rigidized Metals) called me and told me that there was a great photo opportunity on the Buffalo River. He reported that there was a bottleneck of boaters - a bit of a standoff between the king of the lake and the new kids on the block. If you think that this is an impressive sight, then just try to imagine being in one of the rowing shells as the behemoth slowly passes by.
If these images are of interest to you, then you may want to join in on some of the Boom Days activities this weekend. If you're not familiar with Buffalo's waterfront, these types of events are great ways to acclimate yourself to one of the city's greatest assets.
Update: from Mason Meiler:
"I was one of the rowers in the boat dodging the titan of a ship. I just wanted to share that it was Buffalo Seminary's veteran team and the Hutch Tech rowing team of nearly all novice rowers and that it was only my second day on water and it was a phenomenal experience. I thank you for putting that article on you're website. It cheered all of us up very much and got us over our fear, seeing how dodging a freighter is probably the scariest thing one would have to experience while rowing." -Mason
