Default MQ today

I saw the MQ last week. She's getting so moldy on the exterior that from the distance (on the NATCHEZ), her middle decks look gray, not white. Also, at night only the stern half of the boat is lit, at least to be seen from the distance. You'd be able to put a ball on the bow of the 4th deck and it would roll all the way down to the stern, the stern is so much lower than the bow.
