Another name disappears

One bad thing about growing old is all those things you used to like seeing aren't around anymore.

The Ohio River Company boats, the Ashland Oil boats, Ohio Barge Line, G&C Towing ... you know what I mean. Now it looks like the Cenac boats will be rebranded.

According to this story in the Waterways Journal, Kirby Corp. has agreed to buy the marine fleet —boats and barges — of Cenac Marine Services.

July 25, 2018 — The M/V Odette Cenac enters Locks and Dam 52 downbound.

When the deal is completed and Kirby puts its colors on another group of boats, that's another name that goes into history.

It's the way of things.
