The other day I asked if there were any women working on towboats as captains, pilots, engineers ... anything other than cooks. C.R. Neale helped me out by telling me of one woman who is captain of a boat, and she happened to be the person who was steering the Marge McFarlin when I got a picture of it on Friday, which prompted my question in the first place. I made contact with her, and she verified she saw Adam and me and waved at us.

So thanks to C.R. for the help. And to the captain for responding to my inquiry verifying that it was her indeed.

And if you want to see what various towboats look like on the inside, check out C.R.'s site Aboard A Towboat.
