Pray-tell, if your were in management of Majestic America Line where would you lay the boats up so they would be secure, have shore power, avoid freezing temperatures, and be accessable to vendors and various repair personnel? From reading these message boards it seems to most people on here that the management of the DQ boats couldn't fall over dead correctly.
I have followed the Delta Queen for over 50 yrs...my first trip on the boat was in 1953...and in all those years no one has been able to avoid bankruptcy. The first time I went through this Save The Delta Queen campaine was in 1957-1958 when the Cincinnati bank foreclosed on the Greene Line Steamers. At that time Mrs. Greene set the purchase price for the Delta Queen at $125,000. Since then there has been a whole parade of owners; were they all idiots?
