Default Not For Old Men

I love this photo because it shows so much. It's the hurricane roof of the CITY OF CINCINNATI while the boat sits at the L&C wharfboat in Louisville. Notice to the right the stair way going down. Look at the railing, it's not 2 feet high. As an older, overweight man who is not as agile as I used to be, it would take all my courage and concentration to desend those stairs. Think about having to go down those stairs in the middle of the night when there is no moon, the wind is blowing a hurricane, and the boat is shaking. That was real "steamboatin'".
