Judy, you may be right about the length of Foley's license, but Ware gave him a run for his money. Not included in my description of Ware's license (because the DQ did not go there at the time) is that his license on the Tennessee went to the head of navigation, 652 miles. He also was licensed up the Illinois to Lockport Lock and the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal from the Mississippi River to Lake Pontchartrain. He MAY have been licensed on the Kanawha as well; I can't remember.

Charlie Fehlig obtained license up the Arkansas to take the DQ up there in 1972. His partner was Gary Davis from Alligator, MS, who had had a license up there before the river was improved for navigation. Now don't you know there were some stories told on THAT trip!!!
