The Life of a Riverboat Captain

Attendees of this presentation will learn numerous details about how towboats that move barges from location to location on America’s rivers function. Information about daily life aboard towboats will be presented, and participants will see several video segments and hear Tom Struve explain towboat navigation being performed from the point of view of the pilothouse. Tom spent more than two decades as a professional captain of towboats on rivers primarily “sailing” in the Midwest. Tom loves sharing towboat and river stories and anecdotal information.
