The Elisha Woods was named after my Great grandfather, Capt. Elisha Woods. He received his pilot's license at the age of 22, and worked with the Barrett line for 55 yrs.My Grandfather Cassius C. Woods was also a river Capt. a WWI veteran, and a Royal Arch Mason. I never got to meet them, but I'm very proud of both. Cassius' son David is my father, a USAF veteran of 20 yrs.

This is a great site for searching for towboats. By way of introduction, I am a maritime lawyer who helps injured workers under the Jones Act and under the general maritime law. We also assist those most in need with receiving benefits like maintenance and cure. If you are looking for a maritime lawyer, you can reach me at 1(800)6279267.

I would like to applaud Dick for upholding the integrity of the maritime industry with this website, and continuing to keep that tradition alive. Safe boating!

I served as a deckhand 77-78 on the MV White Knight (Agri Trans) before college. I was 19. It was hard work. We had a great captain/crew.

We worked mostly on the Miss btwn STL and St Paul. Made a few trips up the IL R. It was hot in the summer and incredibly cold in the winter. I caught the boat once in Alma, Wisconsi. It was like the Arctic. The river was jammed with ice. Three weeks later I got off the boat in Rock Island. That's as far as we got!!

At one time my Dad, brother, sister, and I all worked in the riverboat business at the same time...but they were all different companies! My dad used to say "If I had known you were all going to work in the river boat business I would have started my own company!" Ha.

I have always thought my education as a man started on the White Knight. After college I spent 26 years in the Marines.

So to all of you out there that served on the White Knight or cut your teeth as a deckhand on a towboat...God bless ya.
