This is the Karen Pape, named for my sister by its owner, Genesis Marine LLC, as she is the CFO of its parent company. This towing vessel was built in 2009 by Eastern Shipbuilding Group Inc. for Florida Marine Transporters, and was originally named Capt. C. H. Guidry. It is 85.8 feet long and weighs 260 tons. Lately it's been moving up and down the Mississippi River and its tributaries.
