Default the NATCHEZ Christening

Here is a photo of the NATCHEZ on her christening day 32 years ago today, with her proud captain, Clarke C. Hawley, posing on the wharf. I note the river was extremely high as you can even see the main deck and guards. It must have been close to the 17ft. flood level, probably about 16 or so. The second photo is on her first day of excursions, April 13th. Both were taken by Bert Fenn of Tell City Indiana. Its hard to believe she's 32 already, and that I have been associated with her for 23 of those years!
