*I misunderstood 'overnight'*
Morning, Jim,
Okay, I pulled up, read again your initial posting realizing I misunderstood your idea. It's clear now. Ummmm...still I wonder about the initial investment etc. to pursue a concept such as that but possible. Letha Greene mentioned to me once years ago with a very revealing statement. "The steamboat business is one of the toughest to be in with a marine operation, fuel, food and beverage, entertainment, hotel operation, crew, passengers, logistics--and I inherited every one of them." That said it all to me.
