Default Clarington-built "J.A. Cresap," now known as "Louise"

A few years back I remember being told that only one Clarington-built boat is still around to this day. It was built, I believe, in the late 1920s or 1930s and named J.A. Cresap. I found this bit of information below on an ancestry website:

"The only powered vessel still in existence that was built by Clarington's Mozena Yard is the "Louise", a small diesel towboat which was first known as the "J.A. Cresap" owned by the late Captain Joe Cresap, Moundsville, West Virginia. It towed coal and other things and later was known as the "Skipper". This wooden boat started with a gasoline engine, later used a more modern oil engine, and today has a diesel engine as the ones used on buses, trucks, and modern towboats."

Any information on the whereabouts and status of this boat would be greatly appreciated!
