Steamboating colleagues,
Thanks Pat and Karen for sharing the many DQ photos above covering years 2008 to 2020. Sobering to say the least viewing the 2020 photos. Clear to any viewer there has been a rapid decline in the boat from outside appearances facing the variations of weather down there. A number may decry that, "Oh, it's just cosmetic" but condition of the wood I wee--and unseen--tells a different story. So far you two the only ones to step up with photos here. What more need to be said? Thanks.

In 1956/57 when the bank foreclosed on the DQ and there were no buyers; Letha Greene said the DQ was the largest, most expensive white elephant in the world, I wonder how long the owners can bleed money keeping watchmen, insurance and dockage going. From the pictures she's beyond repair without a complete dismantleing to the steel frame and a complete rebuild. The future for our ol' gal doesn't look very encouraging.
