Ryan Richards, the captain on board the MV SCF Explorer a 6600hp Z drive vessel, shared this video of his boat clearing the Mississippi River bridges in Vicksburg Friday around 6 p.m. Richards said the crew had to lay the mast and radar down to fit under the bridges due to the high water of the river.
