Although I've been on the DQ many times, Tuesday afternoon was my first time aboard Missie. It was a trip of mixed emotions; sad to see the DQ leaving Cincinnati for perhaps the last time and happy for my first trip in a real steam launch. We made some really close passes by the Queen and I was very dissapointed to see her big sternwheel in such sad looking condition. A thorough cleaning and new paint are badly needed! I realize it is nearing the end of the season, but they used to keep the wheel in much better shape at all times.
