Just to put some numbers on it, this barge is the MARMAC 304, modified by SpaceX. According to this page:

http://www.mcdonoughmarine.com/recent-news.html

That ship has a cargo capacity of over 13,000 tons. I believe an empty Falcon 9 first stage is around 20 tons. Totally different scales.




I read that entire barge blog. Its interesting.
