Off the dock @ 7:00 to grab a ride down in the Tom Bevill Lock.  The other 4 loopers @ Pirate Marine Cove slept in but we wanted to get thru Howell Heflin Lock @ mile 266 so felt we needed to get started early.  The high temp today was a cool 57 degrees.  Passed a doun bund tow @ mile 295 that was VERY discourteous.  He would not respond to our repeated VHF calls & when we tried to pass he cut us off @ the green bouy bringing us to a dead stop.  Reached Howell Heflin Lock @ noon but could not lock through until 3:00 P, a long ordeal.  Tombigbee Oxbow anchorage is a fantastic, large deep & long anchorage.  Transited 2 locks today.
