They need to keep operating the DQ as long as the boat is able to operate. And, from the looks of it, the DQ is doing pretty good for its age. It's still a huge draw, despite its lack of "upscale amenities". The Belle of Louisville is still cooking along in her 90s, too, although it is not a wood-based boat. So, if it takes spending the money to save the DQ, I'd rather see it spent there than on the MQ. Why trade a classic for a steam powered shoe box?
