I doubt if that hull at Tell City was the Chickasaw. In the 50's and early 60's she towed petroluem barges ( red flags) for Triangle Towing at Maysville. Then she towed for T & S towing out of Tobinsport in the Mulzer trade. In 1965 she went to Capt. Harry White of Belle, WV. He used her up on Kanawha till 1971. Hull became a work barge. The Chickasaw was a big boat, 120'l x 30'w with 1000 h.p. by Cats to a split wheel. Superstructure was all steel, so not likely to have seperated due to high water. One of the real fine early Nabrico boats built in 1926.
