Default Thank you for your service, Captain Mike!

You have a wonderful way with words and with handling the str. DELTA QUEEN. We worked together just in 2006; you guided the boat into the locks without bumping the wall when I was on watch. During the dozens of times I held a bumper between the boat and a lock wall, it was rubbed only once and that was a gentle rub. Some of those times, the bow thruster was not working! But you brought her in smoothly, regardless. Those who were sleeping did not know what they were missing.

Perhaps you will come out of retirement for one more trip; I wish to be aboard when you do. It is not that uncommon; Commodore Ernie Wagner came out of retirement briefly in 1978; I transferred over from the MQ for that trip.

Yes, we did see some awesome sunrises. Attached are three sunrises from among the hundreds I shot from the roof when I finished my rounds as Watchman at 6:00.
