This is a wonderful resource. Thank you for maintaining it. I decked on most of the.Valley Line Towboats and am particularly fond of the Valley Transporter, Valley Voyager & the A.D Haynes II. My father was Chief Engineer on the Transporter for many years and as a 10 year old I would make a trip with him in the summers. I followed my father and eventually retired after a 50 year marine career.

late Spring of 1980 whilst travelling in a 19' Grumman square-stern canoe with outboard - on trek around the eastern US - - C.G.Willis Co. kindly offered us a ride (with canoe) from Brunswick, GA, to Philadelphia on the Captain C.G. - - the crew made us feel at home - - especially with the excellent Chesapeake Bay Breakfast of boiled cod and potatoes. They then made connections for us with another company to take us to Boston.

I was a young computer programmer working for a client in New Orleans. The Lane Thomas, now the Nueces, was one of my first programming projects.

The girls and I walked around my old stomping grounds. While we were on the historical suspension bridge we saw a barge traveling on the Ohio river, something rare happened. The barge blew its horn and the captain came out and waved at us. I told the girls that never happens, they said \93You never had pretty girls with you.\94 Thank you for making my daughters visit to wheeling memorable.
