working on the towboats was the best job i ever had, best pay, best benefits.. i loved it..had my health not gotten bad i would still be out there in fact.. its a great opportunity for young men to work their way to the engine room or wheel house where the pay is very very good and its great for a woman to cook out there.. although it can be trying on a marriage being away from home so much it has great benifits and if the marriage is good it won't hurt it. most of the cooks i know were divorced or widowed though..and most were 50 or older..lol

those boats have several tons of steel surrounding them.. they actually don't move much in big winds or storms.i was on one the hurricane before katrina hit..we dropped 40 barges in baton rouge then went to the fleet in devant, la. and picked up the rest of the barges plus a tug. we sat 3 days waiting out the hurricane.. the wind was horrible tornados all around us ands still we sat relatively still..i was never really frightened by the storms while on the boat.

here is a few companies that you should be able to look up on the internet and find out if they hiring, things are pretty slow right now not to many hiring, acl, canal, marquette, inland marine, ingram, artco, kirby, hunter marine, bunge, aep, southern towing, just a few of the many on the river you can also go to americanmariner.net they are supposed to have a national job board for marine type jobs, also a place called mckinley marine service, but i am pretty sure they charge a fee to find a job they cover inland and offshore vessels, hope this helps and good luck
