Thank you George! And congratulations to YOU for saving the mermaids and nameboard for posterity. I can vouch for the fact that Capt. Lexie Palmore is an excellent source and consultant for your project! And I'm sure that passing boats, big and small, will enjoy viewing your unique display!

Indeed, there were many "rampant rumors" making the rounds about the MQ. We always maintained that IF there was any hope the boat might run again the bell should stay with her. When it became apparent this was not to be, some "Nawlins" river friends brought about the generous gift of the bell to the museum.

I am sure that "pieces and parts" of the MQ are now scattered up and down the rivers. Some of it probably will 'surface' as time goes by!

Come see us at the museum anytime! And we always WELCOME new members -- especially those who are steamboat minded!

Keith
