As posted in the earlier topic.... along these lines....

With no exemption is she feasible to run with the 50 passengers that doesn't need the exemption? She hasn't had a full season in several years. Could she run 11 1/2 months with less passengers (less crew, less expense)? Whoever got her would need to know that she's not a money maker, just hopefully break even deal. Help! Captain Sanders, Captain Bates, etc. Am I grasping at straws here?

Many historic sites use volunteer help to keep costs down. For those of us who don't work full time - would we be willing to give up a week or two or more per year to keep her in the water and moving? We'd have the menial jobs, but if it meant saving our QUEEN! Well.....?
