Judy,

The CAJUN QUEEN is now the SAVANNAH RIVER QUEEN at Savannah, GA. Here is the website for the River Street Riverboat Company, her owners. Savannah Riverboat Cruises

Interesting to note...this company was started by the family of Dr. Hugh Claughton who owned and operated The Belle Carol Riverboat Company in Nashville, TN for many years. Of course the Belle Carol Riverboat Company is long gone now. Their last boat (The MUSIC CITY QUEEN) is now operated by OpryLand with her sister boat the GENERAL JACKSON.

Wonder what ever happened to the passenger barge (The NASHVILLE SHOW BOAT) they had in the late 70's? At one time I saw a picture of the old KANAWHA (Howard-built diesel sternwheeler known as the BELLE CAROL when the Claughtons had her) towing her and wondered how that worked! Must have been a hard steer!
