Default Tribute to DQ & Crew in The Waterways Journal

Capt. Alan Bates, well known author of the weekly "Old Boat" column for The Waterways Journal, wrote a wonderful tribute to the Str. DELTA QUEEN and her stalwart crew in the October 27th issue. The color photograph accompanying the column shows the towboat M/V FRED WAY escorting the DQ after her departure from Point Pleasant, where Capt. Charles Henry Stone reports there was scarcely a dry eye when The Legendary Lady left the landing. As many know, Capt. Fred Way played a very BIG role in helping Capt. Tom Greene bring the DQ to the Mississippi River system. So it was most appropriate for a boat bearing Capt. Fred's name to accompany the DQ out of Point Pleasant, amidst whistle salutes, calliope music and much weeping on the waterfront -- and undoubtedly aboard the DQ as well!

Thanks, Alan, for a gracious tribute, especially to the UNsung heroes involved, and for telling it like it is!

SAVE THE DELTA QUEEN!
