Wednesday, November 07, 2001
Delta Towing LLC and Signet Maritime Corporation began work on a period contract to the Texas Department of Transportation with four tugboats and three barges, providing navigational support to the ferryboat system between Port Isabel and Padre Island. The problems resulting from collision damage to the Queen Isabella Causeway on September 15 required a new ferry system be in place with tugboat and barge landing operations implemented providing for safety of ferry navigation to and from the two ports. According to Delta Towing President, Bucky Monteiro, the primary objective of the partnership between these three entities will be Safety First. The main operations center will be under direction of Captain Scott Cowan, based in Signet’s Brownsville office.
