"When I was a boy, there was but one permanent ambition among my comrades in our village on the west bank of the Mississippi River. That was, to be a steamboatman. We had transient ambitions of other sorts, but they were only transient.... now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates. These ambitions faded out, each in its turn; but the ambition to be a steamboatman always remained." Samuel Clemens
Glad to see you made it! We are in the beginning stages of our new website so please bear with me while I tweak the design and functionality of the site.
Please feel free to look around make sure to check back frequently for updates. The forums will be up soon and hopefully will be a place to discuss all sorts of topics dealing with the river/maritime industry. We welcome all comers from deckhands to captains to cooks and even the ones who don't work on the river but would like to keep up with the latest info. I am hoping to incorporate a blog of some sorts into the site but not quite sure if I want to make it a personal blog of my daily routine on a towboat which has been pretty redundant as of late, or maybe a professional blog of news related items.
