It bothers me more than a little that no one here seems to grasp the importance of what the loss of this machinery could mean. No less than the continued operation of the DQ as a steam powered boat is at stake. The cost of storing the stuff is nothing compared to what it would cost to fabricate these parts new, if even possible. Machinery wears out, regardless of how well built it is and the hardware on the DQ is no exception! Better book your trips now no matter the price because without that machinery, the DQ is on borrowed time.
