Default More on the MACKENZIE, JASON/JONES

At dinner tonight Vi Foley pointed out that Capt. Bill Foley had worked on the ALEXANDER MACKENZIE with both Capts. Ingersoll and Marquette Lancaster.
Also, it isn't well-known that passenger boat Capt. Doc Hawley once worked on the towboat HERBERT. E. JONES(nee JASON), in order to increase his license. He went from the JONES to the DQ in the 1959 season to earn this upgrade. Coincidentally, the JONES was cooled down for the last time on Aug. 1 of that year, which is Doc's birthday.
