I am probably all wrong in my thinking, and this gets into an area that probably shouldn't be discussed in this open format. My thoughts are this...what is something that an operator of 12 or so passenger boats with crews of mostly young people not want anywhere near his boats? What cost the river industry millions to get rid or 30 or so years ago? What has the DQ's management said they will have when they begin operating again? It starts with a U and ends with an N......you can fill in the blanks.
I would spend a half million gladly to keep strikes, work stoppages, & inane work rules from getting a foothold in the passenger boat business.
Just my thoughts, like most things I'm probably wrong.
