Default Delta Queen - Home In New Orleans !

Greetings From New Orleans ,
Yesterday , the 6th. of November the Str. Delta Queen returned home to an uncertain future . The boat landed at the Poydras St. Wharf in New Orleans and its my understanding that the entire crew will be off the boat and on their way to their respective homes no latter than this coming Monday . ALso , the prevailing rumor on the boat is that the DQ will be towed to the Baton Rouge harbor and secured to the McKinney barge fleet just below the city until her future can be decided . Somewhat of an unglamorous ending for the DQ but hopfully someone or some corporation will come along with " Deep Pockets " and ressurect the DQ and do something both reputable and appropriate for this National Treasure . Time will tell !
Smoothe Sailing !
