The DQ is too famous a steamboat to end up like some others you allude to. Surely some town, person, or organization would get her a floating muse, etc. This same thought has been in the air since 1970, "What's going to happen to the DELTA QUEEN if she quits running in the overnight trade?" How about us starting another thread and imagine what life for the QUEEN would be like if she's sold by the present owners?
