Capt. Ted,

Just last week I heard another rumor that indicated the cost to remove the asbestos was cost prohibitive in her scrapping. Which is why she was still sitting at Perry Street. I remember all the interior panels were maronite asbestos. But, I thought they were all sealed up. I guess when they started the "refit" in 2007 someone noticed what they were cutting in to.

If the hull and engines are being salvaged, is there hope to think a new vessel could be built on that hull?

If there is a chance we will get a new steamboat out of this. I am all for it! I doubt that is the case and it is a pipe dream, I know! One can always dream, can't they? Imagine what Capt. Alan Bates could put atop that hull? What about the late Capt. Dennis Trone?
