Default Delta Queen looks great

The boat looks better than ever. Shining and gleaming. Even the cabin doors have been varnished and the doorknobs polished! All the handrails have been sanded and varnished. The interior is sparkling. Even the exterior decks and the smokestack have received fresh coats of paint.

When I boarded the boat in New Orleans for her relocation to Chattanooga, I was shocked at just what can happen to a boat sitting over just a few months. She looked pitiful. Much love (and money) is being dedicated to restoring the Delta Queen to her rightful glory.

I've posted some photos on my blog at Delta Queen 2008 Season Blog
