We saw this all the time on the Mekong, the guy walking along the deck in that clip would have been splashing as he walked!  I saw a few that pushed it right to the limit - the wake from a dinghy would have swamped them!

Sweet smoking Mary, are they barging bowling balls? That video is incredibly unnerving.

positive buoyancy is a good thing.  He seems to have it handled pretty well.

The barge in the first post isn't that bad. The cargo box still well above water and lots of buoyancy

I was thinking that the piece of AstroTurf on the stern for the dog to pee was going to push the barge under for sure.
