*DQ's return to service*
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Steamboating colleagues,
Good points, Judy with Phil Johnson being more than candid with what renovation, restoration, repairs will follow putting the DELTA QUEEN back in service. Phil, at least to me, has been more than open, considerate. What you missed has been a number outside of the present owners, administrators of the DQ who made more than a few of the statements heard around here in our part of the country. Don't kill the messenger but rather just read what a number of so-called DQ friends and advocates have said in public. We hear it all the time. Again, the DQ present administration needs to take ownership on the PR and new releases required and not relying on 2nd and 3rd party 'fans' to do their work for them. I'm totally in the dark about any other web administrators or what they say about the boat. Hope all is well. Back in town. CHEERS!
