Default Bernstein's Belle gets wheel back

Hi All,

I was pleasantly suprised today while down working on my boat to see Capt. Alan Bernstein's Belle of Cincinnati slide by and to my shock the sternwheel is fully operational again. The Belle apparently had some issues with the hydraulic drive system for the wheel and has had the wheel "chained up" for some time now. One Captain I spoke with last year told me he had heard there where no plans to fix the wheel. Cap'n Bill is a man of his word, as he said that wheel would roll again and around and round she was going today!
She sure looked great paddling upriver today, makes me kick myself for forgetting to take my camera down to the boat today.

Aaron
