Letter: Mv. Capt. Rick Neale
It was so good to see Capt. David Smith’s column featuring the Capt. Rick Neale (“Weirton Express”) featured as the first “Old Boat” of the New Year in the January 9 issue of The Waterways Journal.
It was very well written, and the colorful drone photo from Capt. C.R. Neale perfectly replicated the official b/w “glamour” shot from Dravo, 65 years ago.
This was a great combination of photography and history with a concise update.
It’s heartwarming to see “old iron” appreciated both by the writer and especially the owners, Neale Marine Transportation & Fleeting LLC.
Capt. Jeff L. Yates
