    Default The NATCHEZ is 40, hard to believe!

    40 years ago today the NATCHEZ was christened and she made her first public trip the next day. There have been several features published about this anniversary, here is one of them:
    Natchez, Beloved Jazz Steamboat of New Orleans, Turns 40 - ABC News
    which was based on an interview with Doc a few weeks ago.
    One mistake: it was 1951 when Doc started on the AVALON, not 1954.
    The picture is of Doc on the Christening Day, April 12, 1975 taken by Bert Fenn
