Hopper Barges

We build barges to last...

J. Russell Flowers, Inc. hopper barges are packed with features and benefits that other barges do not offer.  Most of our barges are built with heavy 5/8" inner-bottoms, heavy lower hopper side plating, bilge knuckles, and double continuous rub bars. All corner and wear plates are 3/4" plate. Rake knuckles are usually 1/2" plate. We fully paint the exterior of our barges including the bottom with quality epoxy coatings.  The lower portion of our hopper barge interiors receive a heavy but flexible coating.
