Default Remembering Captain Robert James "Roddy" Hammett.

On this day, 30 November 1995, Captain Roddy Hammett was senselessly murdered in New Orleans. Of my generation of steamboaters, none was more unique, or talented, than he. Ironically, Roddy died on a day that had happier connotations in the steamboat world: November 30th was also the anniversary of Mark Twain's birth and the launching of the hull of the Steamer MISSISSIPPI QUEEN.

You are missed, Captain Hammett....
