Hulk at Tell City
Can anybody tell me the name of the sternwheel hulk beached at Tell City, Indiana?

Alan: If you're talking about the sternwheel gas boat hulk, it was the MILLIE F., later the GUY L. In the very early days of the MOR Chapter of S&D, several of us visited the boat at Tell City in the fall of 1976, then owned by Morris Carlock.

Thank you, Keith. A towboat pilot spotted the sternwheel while paddling up to Cannelton and called me to learn the name. I could not help him.
