Talk about taking a detour and coming in by the back door! I just read Jonathan's inquiry about the JASON's sternwheel at Pittsburgh, and recall being taken over to view the remains of that boat (which served as a "boatel" if memory serves correctly) back in 1968 or 69. Jimmy Swartzwelder took Gabe Chengery and myself out to see it while the DQ was in port that day. Somewhere in my slide files I have some slides of that day's outing. Strange thing is, Jonathan never mentioned this to me, and it wasn't until I read his posting that I made the connection! Isn't the internet and this message board wonderful? They have ways of bringing families together!
