Default Sprague

Thanks Judy for posting those photos of the bitter end of the Sprague. I was on her four times. Twice in 1959, when upbound in tow here at Cincy and when she was on display at Pittsburgh. Once in the 1960's at Vicksburg, even went to the show on board and finally in April, 1977 when the boat was beached out after the fire. Spent several hours on board. You could drive your car right up to the hull. In fact I used the car roof ( a station wagon) to access the boat. Funny thing was the road down had a rather high center crown but I got down OK. Could never figure out why it drug all the way up.
