I was on the ADMIRAL one very hot and sticky summer day the last year she ran under steam. The air conditioning wasn't working, so not much time was spent looking up at the ceiling in the ballroom and admiring the signs of the Zodiak painted above. I can't even tell you if a band was playing. I can tell you Jim Blum was pilot, "Popeye" and "Wimpy" were in the engineroom, and a real neat arcade machine on the main deck recreated the race between the NATCHEZ and ROB'T E. LEE. I haven't set foot on her since.
