Default A boat history question:

Dear ORG friends,
Does anyone remember the small towboat, -LITTLE HAM-? She was built and launched at JEFFBOAT, on December 13, 1945. Her picture is on the cover of an old copy of the publication, -JEFFBOAT- It's dated February 1946. I found it in an old collection of my Dads river boat mrmorabilla. She was built for the Ohio River Sand Company of Louisville Ky. She was powered by a 100 H.P. Diesel, and had a new rudder design by a Mr. R.N. Coolidge of Nashville, Tenn. I'm wondering if she could still be operating today, somewhere on the river system. The article states that she was christened by Mrs. Phil Comstock. Daughter of Mrs. Hamilton Duffy, President of the Ohio River Sand Company.
