Default Towboat Elizabeth Dewey, any info??

One night in '08 we were on board our beloved DQ snoring away in our closet, er cabin, when I awoke, as something wasn't quite right. Ah ha!! We're in a lock; and here comes a towboat going the other way in the adjoining lock--but wait! The nameboard on the front of the pilothouse is Elizabeth Dewey! Now, not only does this boat share my last name, it shares my grandmother's first name! By the time I found the camera, she was past us, and I was not in a state of dress to run out on the deck and try to get a photo.
So, does anyone know anything about this modern towboat? I'm just really curious!
Thanks all!
David D.
PS Tell me I didn't dream the whole thing too!
