Riverboat Traditions Pass From Father To Son
Following in his father’s footsteps, Juan Mendivil, Jr. came to work aboard the Steamboat NATCHEZ, continuing the riverboat traditions that are passed from father to son. Today Juan Sr. is a Chief Engineer and Juan Jr. is a Fireman. Scotty Vieages, Jr., who joined the crew in 1995, is also a Fireman whose father is a Chief Engineer. Master Captain Steve Nicoulin, Sr.’s son came to work for the company in 2003 and Steve Jr. is now a pilot and captain himself.
