Paducah Marine Supply and Service, owned and operated by Hougland Barge Line, was one of the first floating boat stores on the inland waterways.The operation had its own fleet of towboats, barges and a machine and carpentry shop. Houghland Barge Line, one of the many family owned towing companies that called Paducah home port, built the "Boat Store" from a converted war surplus Corps of Engineers quarters boat.From 1945 until 1975, almost anything a towboat needed was available at this site. Today, most boat supplies are delivered midstream.
