Office: (504) 671-2020
After Hours: (618) 225-9008
Eighth District online newsroom


Coast Guard urges preparedness as high water season approaches


NEW ORLEANS – As the high water season begins on the Mississippi and the Western Rivers, the Coast Guard urges mariners to prepare for the risks associated with high water levels and strong currents.

High water and strong river currents can quickly create a dangerous situation for a vessel and its crew. It is important to take actions that reduce the risks associated with high water. One towing vessel crew recently proved that simple preventative measures can make a major difference.

On Sunday, January 12, the crew of the inspected towing vessel STEVE G was assisting a grounded barge in the Ohio River near West Franklin, Indiana. During the evolution, the bow of the towing vessel rode up on the barge, which submerged the stern of the tug. The strong river current then caused a severe list, but the vessel’s watertight integrity prevented it from capsizing or sinking. The crew’s proactive actions to keep the watertight doors closed and to maintain the watertight envelope of the hull potentially saved their lives and saved the vessel.

“The purpose of the Coast Guard’s Maritime Prevention Program is to correct safety issues, well before a hazard exists, in order to prevent the loss of life, environmental damage, or disruption of our vital Marine Transportation System,” said Capt. Tracy Phillips, the Coast Guard Eighth District’s Chief of Prevention. “When crews are actively following a safety management system, and commercial vessels are in compliance with marine safety regulations, the risks to the vessel are drastically reduced and the crew is better prepared to respond if an emergency does occur.”

As of July 2018, towing vessels are now subject to regular Coast Guard inspections according to Title 46 Code of Federal Regulations, Subchapter M. These inspections ensure the vessels are meeting the regulations related to safety management, equipment, construction and operational requirements.

The National Weather Service predicts that there is an elevated threat of spring flooding for the Western Rivers of the U.S. During the fall of 2019, the upper Midwest experienced rainfall levels at 150% to 200% of normal, and the river levels are already high throughout the area. This sets the stage for the elevated risk of flooding during the upcoming spring, even with a normal level of precipitation during the winter.

The Coast Guard recommends that all mariners, both commercial and recreational, take measures to protect themselves and their vessels as we approach the high water season.

Mississippi River Near Davenport, Iowa

The River Is High, Why Not Raise The Gates?.......


The Mississippi River is running high and we are being warned that there is an enhanced risk of flooding this spring.  People are questioning why the rollers gates at Lock and Dam No.15 at Rock Island/Davenport have not been raised in order to get the extra water out of the area.


Some accuse the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers of keeping the Mississippi River artificially high to keep from blowing their budget dredging silted in areas.  They also claim that the Corps makes flooding worse by holding back excessive water during the winter months.


It is true that the Corps is bound by Congressional mandate to maintain a 9 foot deep channel depth, but the agency does no create flooding.  The Corps will raise the roller gates when the water levels reach a certain depth.  When that occurs, it is a free-flowing river........

Boating Legislation

Congress Held Water Infrastructure Hearing.......


When the second session of the 116th Congress began, a U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Water Resources held a hearing on proposals for the Water Resources Development Act of 2020.


The WRDA is an important legislative package that sets federal water resources infrastructure policy and provides federal approval for civil works projects along waterways and in the nation's harbors.


The Water Resources Development Act typically runs on a two-year reauthorization schedule and will be slated for authorization this year........

After several layovers, the resolution approving repairs to the Riverview Drive retaining wall is still on the agenda as Alton officials wait for possible assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. 


The retaining wall was damaged during last spring's severe rain storms and record setting flooding.  Officials are hoping that FEMA will award disaster relief funding for the necessary repairs........

On Friday, responders called off their search for a woman that may have jumped from the Highway 364 bridge in St. Charles County.


According to Corporal Juston Wheetley of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the search was called off due to an approaching winter storm.  He added that the search would resume after the weather clears.


Reportedly, a motorist on the Veterans Memorial Bridge spanning the Missouri River saw a woman standing on the bridge just before 10 am Friday.  After driving past, the motorist looked back and saw the woman was gone........

Mississippi River Near Buffalo, Illinois

Eight Months Out And Flood Repairs Still Continue........


After the Mississippi River receded, Buffalo, Illinois resident Ron Brougham got a head start on repairing his home when volunteers removed flood-damaged drywall and insulation from his home.


Once the debris was hauled out and the mold remediation was complete, the project was at a stand-still.  Brougham had received a small amount of money from his insurance policy, but he was not sure how to proceed with repairs.


Habitat for Humanity ended up getting involved, with volunteers first removing the debris pile from the yard and then getting to work reassembling Brougham's home.  2019 marks the first year that Habitat for Humanity has been involved in flood repairs........

Bloch Marine Service

Yacht Club of St. Louis Location......


Hello Everyone!
We are happy to announce that Bloch Marine Service is becoming Yacht Club Marine. As of October 1st, 2019, Bloch Marine Service will no longer be taking new work orders, and will cease operations by October 31st, 2019.
But to keep service seamless, Yacht Club Marine will be performing the same quality service that you have come to expect over the years at both the Yacht Club of St. Louis and at Harbor Point Marina.
With that said, the winterization season is just around the corner, and it's time to get on the schedule to have expert winterization performed on your boat to protect it from the ravages of winter freezing. And also, winter is the best time to have Yacht Club Marine perform that much needed maintenance or big project that you have been putting off.
If your winterization request is received before October 15th, 2019, you will receive a 10% discount on winterization labor.
There is also a 10% discount on labor performed during the winter months for those big or small projects that the boat may need.
Best regards, and we'll see you out there!
The Yacht Club Marine Crew.

As the weather we have had this year with Heavy heart The event is going to be pushed till next year. 2020 The River levels we have had this year there is still no docks currently at New Athens, Water is still high on the Mississippi and the sandbar is still currently under water & still alot of floating logs in the Mississippi and Safety is a top priority. All Company's that have donated towards the event will remain the same. If anyone is interested in their Company joining for next year please reach out to me. All Tshirts sales will remain the same and Store will open up next year to purchase Tshirts. If you are interested in a Refund please always reach out if not your order will remain the same and your order will be sent out before the event next year. A date is not set in stone but will be set shortly. Possibly Labor day weekend have a tie up in party cove on Kaskaskia for people that will be staying local. Thank you Any thoughts please post below...Happy Boating

Yacht Club of St. Louis

Mississippi River

At UMR 225 On Dardenne Slough



Little history on the Yacht Club of St Louis!
The original building and pool were constructed in the late 1940’s for a family’s summer home. In the mid 1960’s it became a restaurant and marina with 100 boat slips. That building later burned down due to a kitchen fire .
The current building was constructed in late 1960’s and the marina has grown to 275 slips ranging in size from 24’ to 60’.
Multiple floods have caused the current building to be torn down. This was not the idea of ownership, but insurance regulations and county municipalities deemed necessary.
We are anxious to show members the new layout for the clubhouse and pool. We appreciate your patience and loyalty!!
