Default DQ and SOLAS

I sent a lengthy message via save the Delta Queen. Not sure if it gets into these realms but will post a copy FYI. I am beginning to understand the definition of antique seeing as how I am the only one around who was present at the first hearing in Washington in 1967 or thereabouts. To legislate the end of the DQ( in effect) is tantamount to ordering the dismantling of the STATUE of LIBERTY. That is a fact that may be significant. I was present when the DQ obtained that status. The most effective way to turn this travesty around will be to mount legislation. I am considering whether there are other options. Perhaps a direct assault in the courts. Or a combination of challenges. My thoughts are still pretty new and there will be things/hurdles to negociate. Still that is a thought. And as Yogi said "It ain't over 'til it's over." GCG
