MQ spirit lives
I thought I would share a couple of pictures with you. The pilothouse name board is in a temporary position on our deck, overlooking the Ohio river at MM 600.5. later this year it will take on a more permanent site on the upper hillside along with the mermaids.
A quick update on the mermaids; they are at a local body shop being repaired of many cracks and a few breaks in their fiberglass. Most of the repair work is completed and they will be painted next. We were also able to replace the missing fingers! The picture of the mermaids is where I picked them up in Pierre Part, LA.
I plan on having the mermaids and the sign displayed (temporary) for the Great Steamboat race, Belle of Louisville Vs American Queen on April 25. If you happen to be on one of the boats for the race try and convince the Capt to give us a whistle or two in memory of the MQ!
