Dear Scottie & steamboating colleagues:
What a surprise--and treat--to hear from you way over there in Dumbarton, Scotland. Another surprise at your report the DELTA QUEEN matter has appeared on Scottish news. The DELTA KING/DELTA QUEEN have come a long way in their history from the DENNY BROS. yards there where they were built. I understand most of the old yards and companies there are now closed and out of business. Can/could you provide us with any additional details at what the news media there have said in their coverage? To my personal knowledge you are the first to post on this great web from that part of the world. Keep us posted and tell us more. Just goes to prove what goes out all over the world via Internet. A sobering thought in what we write and hit 'Post Quick Reply.'

I asked a Scottish friend of mine here in Cincinnati, Ohio in a joking manner if they "...have summer in Scotland?" His reply? "Yes, if you're paying attention at the moment." Has the heather already bloomed on the moors? "Tying the boat up at night" is appropriate. We hope 'night' doesn't fall on the QUEEN and our rivers here. Time will tell.
