To the Draine Family, I didn't know Bob well, but the guys who work on the River are a breed of a different caliber. I can remember being quite young and scooting over the guard rail to go down to the "Mike" to see my Dad, and I remember the old days when the Riverfest was Riverfront Days with Frisbee playin the harmonica...the boat pushes and ultra light planes. The good ones like my dad and yours are gone but not forgotten...not by a long shot. The river it runs through my veins for its so much more than a job, its a history of my family and where we came from.

I had become lucky enough to work for Bob at Capital Barge in the late 70's and one day while I was cleaning up an old tool box of mine Bob came up to me in that very close manner that he had, grinned... then said Bim, you know you just can't go wrong buying tools or books that tell ya how to do things. Very important knowledge for me... Thank you Sir !!! God speed . See ya on the other side.

To the Robert Draine Family:
Bob was a longtime member of the waterway community, a professional mariner and a good friend. We are all deeply saddened by his passing.

To the Draine family: I am so sorry for your loss - and for our loss, too. Bob Draine was willing to help anyone at anytime. Without Bob's help in introducing us the people who built the IRON COFFIN, we never would have had our wonderful boat, TRUBADOR. I can just see Bob sailing a ship across the heavens!!
