I, too, was a Mate working for Captain Paul Underwood, but on the DELTA QUEEN. One of my greatest thrills was the time we arrived at the Boswell Oil Terminal and barges littered the landing, so Cap'n Paul came down on deck with his game plan, and we shuffled all those barges with the QUEEN. I wonder if that had been done before or since; the DELTA QUEEN used as a towboat?
