Default The Queen has Arrived!

On this bright and beautiful May morning I just drove alongside Riverside Drive en route to work at the steamboat museum. What a WONDERFUL sight to look across the Ohio and see the AMERICAN QUEEN at the Louisville landing along with the BELLE of LOUISVILLE and BELLE of CINCINNATI. After not seeing her for a few years I'd almost forgotten just how BIG the AQ looms over the riverfront!

Once again, we can happily and truly say it's going to be a STEAMboat race!

WELCOME BACK to the AMERICAN QUEEN! Best wishes and THANKS to ALL the boats and their fine crews!

PS: "The Sternline Telegraph" reports that the MQ bell will be lifted off the AQ via a Jeffboat crane barge and towboat later today!
