    what were we saying earlier about these two bit mom and pop boat companies from Belle Chase?

    Miss. River closed during search for sunken tug

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Mississippi River traffic in southeastern Louisiana was shut down Sunday while the Coast Guard led a search for a sunken tugboat believed to have gone down in the middle of the river.

    Coast Guard Petty Officer Carlos Vega said 28 southbound and 22 northbound vessels were anchored and waiting for the re-opening of the river; and numerous others not yet in the area would likely be affected. One cruise ship bound for New Orleans was diverted to Mobile, Ala., and contingency plans were being made to do the same for another cruise liner that had been set to reach the city Sunday night.

    The Coast Guard closed the river Saturday at 1 p.m. after the sinking of the 48-foot tug C-Pec was reported near the town of Venice. Officials don't know why the tug sank or exactly where but Vega said it was believed to have gone down in the middle of the river. Traffic in both directions was shut down from the mouth of the river to near mile marker 10. It was to remain closed until authorities could locate the tug and determine whether it was a navigation hazard.

    "Two people from the sunken tug were reported to enter the river and were rescued by a good Samaritan and transferred to the Coast Guard response boat and taken back to Station Venice," the Coast Guard said in a news release. The names and condition of those rescued were not available.

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and local authorities were helping with the search, which included the use of sonar.

    Ownership of the downed tug was unclear. The Coast Guard said it was working to find and contact the owner. Online records indicate the vessel was owned by a limited liability corporation with a Belle Chasse, La., address, but the corporation was listed as inactive on the Louisiana Secretary of State website.
    Two people were rescued....don't they know who owns the boat?

    btw, the correct spelling of the tug's name is the CEPTIC

    Well with the way the current is in that river sometimes, it might be possible it's tumbling down stream making it harder to locate.

    Anyone that has a LLC has to pay a 100 dollar tax every year, it is called the business privilege tax. If you don't pay the tax the guvment makes your LLC inactive. That is probably all that happened here, some Cajun didn't pay his BPT.

    a photo of the tug CEPTIC has been uncovered by our diligent internet bloodhounds




    I believe the crew on it scuttled the thing and dove into the river in order to get away from the stench!

    It looks like they should have spelled it "Septic." Make sure that your tetanus shot is up to date before boarding!

    Ha! The slightest due diligence would have proved that this isn't true, but don't let the truth get in the way of making libelous statements.
