In 1973, aluminum siding was installed on the boiler deck of the Str. BELLE OF LOUISVILLE. The new material covered STEAMER BELLE OF LOUISVILLE - PORT OF LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY across her stern and had to be relettered. Capt. Doc Hawley, an expert steamboat sign painter, undertook this task in the spring while the BELLE was in winter quarters near McAlpine Locks. I was standing down on the deck of the wharfboat RENOWN as Doc began his task, precariously perched above the paddlewheel. He looked down and said, "Damn! I wish this boat's name was J.S.!"
