To add to Dale's comments - seems like I read in in Saga of the Delta Queen, or one of Fred's other books that Tom Geene's first choice was the Delta King - for reasons that I don't remember at the moment. Might have been because one of the DQ's engines had to be repaired by the Navy at great expense during the war.
Tom was outbid by someone - an Asian man, I think. I'll have to drag that book out and refresh my menory.
