Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It may well be that the US Navy only has a few of the water barges like the one shown and others are not in that theater of operations. Does anyone know what the channel depth is for vessels entering and leaving the plant's "harbor"? From Google Earth it appears that there might be a channel into the harbor from deep water but I have no way to judge the depth.
