. A description and notation from the Tacoma Public Library that this is the second Captain Bob, the first having come to a bad end
. A photo upriver from Portland
. An interesting paragraph in a State of Washington document about towboat mishaps and spilled wheat; I also learned that Captain Bob will sometimes push five barges at a time (maybe upriver, but never here near the mouth) (Search the page for "Captain Bob" or scroll to page 15, line 21.)
