We did our own "lead paint abatement" on the DELTA QUEEN, in 1971, with Big Cap operating a cutting torch and Jim Blum, Gabe, myself, and others removing the heat-softened paint with long-handled scrapers. At the end of the day we swept up the lead paint residue off the deck, put it into a metal garbage can, climbed into the can jumped up and down and crushed it all into powder. It two of us to carry the heavy can away to the trash; only half full after being stomped-down. Try that today.
