Default A couple DQ Tidbits Part 2

Thanks to Philip Johnson for starting this thread. It was getting pretty long so I didn't want things to get lost, as I'm sure we'll come up with many more items, so here's a Part 2 to that thread.
Sam just posted about how he had to hook the stack extension to remove it. Here are some pictures from a July 1978 UMR trip in fairly high water. We stopped below the I 280 bridge at the bottom of the Quad Cities harbor, where Sam did his 'fishing' expedition.
3) That's the bottom of the wing bridge on the top of the pix. This is after almost 3 hours of fishing.
2) There's Shipyard himself supervising.
1) Finally down

pix posted in reverse order!!!
