Default Steamboats Needs a Roof Captain

After my recent visit on the DELTA QUEEN , at Decatur, and seeing all that that the "Roof Captain" must do, I hope that the company and the USCG never conspire to remove this most-needed post from the boat(s). A steamboat, unlike an more automated diesel boat is, to quote Chief Engineer Cal Benefiel, "another catagory", and needs that additional element for the security and safety of the vessel(s).
