This is a wonderful article mostly about the history of the Delta King, but with several references to The Legendary One. Also some great pictures of the DK as she is today. A very concise history, containing many of the bits and pieces I've been able to glean over the years listening to all of you talk about her (especially David Dewey).

I had not realized that the DK sank. Not once, but twice. There's a picture of her half submerged and she looks a lot worse than the MQ does.... just sayin'. Maybe I've been wrong about the MQ. Just maybe, though.

Enjoy.
