    after moving to a city on a big ass river I can't help but notice the similarities between Freights and Barges.

    they're nice and rusty, they have a wide variety of colors and reporting marks, semi-chill layups...

    2 questions...

    has anyone tried to dent these yet?

    and what maybe are the odds of getting spotted in cities like st. louis, memphis, st. paul/minneapolis, new orleans, baton rouge, debuque even?

    and yeah, i seen that boat tie did.

    I've seen stuff on boats and barges before. just another surface to paint. all waterways and ports are pretty high security now with all the sept. 11th "terrorists everywhere" crap, so be careful.

    errrr, not really. maybe the barges that carry container and crap like that...if there is any, because im pretty sure all of that is carryed on ships. barges usualy carry stuff like wood chips or crushed cars and generaly dont really have all that high security, if you pulled up beside one in a boat and started to paint i doubt anyone would even notice you.

    old news , theyre not hard to paint but there massive scale makes small artwork look stupid unless ur super close .plus water WILL wash away your shit if you paint it to low , and unless youre a oceanographer and know the water levels at given times its a guessing game . Too much trouble

    Re: Re: river barges


    as for the water levels there's a pretty obvious water stain where the barge is submerged when loaded,
    and I'm defenitly not talking about tractor truck containers.

    any barges i'd be able to get to either carry sand, gravel, or scrap metal, i'm hoping somehow that these get layed up downtown someplace.

    not a bad idea, my whole life ive known spots on this river where theyve tied up barges to leave them for a few days till the next tug boat to gets to em and ive never thought to paint one, uve officially given me my next idea haha, thanx, ill let yah know how it goes. only thing im worried about is the rust on em, if uve ever seen one upclose or felt one theyre not exactly the smoothest/least flakey thing to paint on but oh well. lata.

    rollers with rusto bucket paint is what is needed. i did a few but you gotta realize they are rusty, exposed to harsh elements, so you need to take that into consideration when choosing a paint. id say dont wast your time unless you do a million of them.

    If these were around where I live I would hit them. If it was chill enough I would try to take a little step ladder so the water would erode the piece away as fast.
