Default Casino rock island

The pretty gambling boat CASINO ROCK ISLAND left here today, supposedly enroute to Peoria. As I type, she is in pool 17, underway on her own power. In my mind, she was the prettiest of all the gambling boats. When I saw her from the stern, she looked just like a small NATCHEZ, according to her sheer. Of course, sheer and camber are hindrances on a gambling boat, so she is now replaced by a landbased building(its over some water tributary to the Mississippi, wink wink). Word is the CRI is going to Peoria, as are the other boats in the complex: towboat TG GEROW, dredge OCKERSON, and towboat EFFIE AFTON nee MATEUR.
The arrghhh and gnashing of teeth is because I can't find an entire album of CRI photos in this pile/file system of mine. So here is the only shot I have handy of the complex. That's the CRI on the riverside, the TG GEROW with the OCKERSON and MATEUR partially visible...
