Default River Pilots - Louden & Zimmer

Greetings From New Orleans ,
As I was going through some boxes in my attic I came accross this shot of Capt.'s Harry Louden & Art Zimmer on board the Str. Delta Queen back in May of 77' . I could not help but imagine what they were thinking at the time and my only regret was that I didn't take more of these men but the others as well that served on the " Queen " while I was there . I remember the times in the Delta Queen's pilot house and listening to them as they told their stories of not only Life on the river but of Life in general for them and others of that Day . What a shame their not here with us now to offer some common sense and wisdom that is so sorely lacking in this Day .
Smoothe Sailing !
