Default Missing Mississippi Queen Status

Greetings From New Orleans ,
To hopfully clear up some questions and concerns , concerning the location and status of the Str. Mississippi Queen , well as of approximately 12:20 , this pm on the eighth of January , in the year of our Lord , 2010 , she is still laying dormant at the Perry Street Wharf in Gretna , Louisiana , on the West Bank ( Right Decending Shore ) and across from New Orleans . The only thing that I can see that is visibly changing is the overall filth that is apparently taking over the outside of this vessel . Last year , Capt. Fred Carmichael and I made an inspection of the interior spaces of the vessel and to say she was in deplorable condition is to put it quite polietely !
So , she is still laying at the Perrry St. Wharf but her overall condition is degrading rapidly with no relief in sight . Sorry , to have to report this but that is the current state of this once proud steamer !
Smooth Sailing !
Ted Davisson
