    Default Photos on board the DQ april 23, 2015

    The first time I've seen the DELTA QUEEN in 8 years. She is in Houma La., less than 90 minutes from New Orleans, in a slip very near the Intracostal Canal. You can see her as soon as you get on the Prospect Avenue Bridge (LA 3087).
    1) Capt. Doc Hawley is welcomed by Capt. Mike Williams, the Captain and caretaker and chief cheerleader of the DQ.
    2) The bow is high and nosed in against the muddy end of the slip. The stern is drawing 9 ft. and Capt. Mike mentioned this was to allow the rain water to run straight down from bow to stern without needing to be swept off. He doesn't miss a trick!
    3) Doc and Mike are looking at the wheel and stern. You can see the rest of the slip through which the JW HERRON expertly wove her through to her docking area.
