Default Anniversary of MQ vs. CRIMSON GLORY

It was 29 years ago today that the MISSISSIPPI QUEEN and CRIMSON GLORY met up near Donaldsonville, where there fortunately were harbor towboats which were able to push the MQ out of the 80 ft. depths onto a sandbar. Lots of action on the sternline telegraph that evening as we all tried to gather as much info as we could - I was in hot water for tying up our phone, as it is my sister's birthday and my parents wanted to call her. I said birthdays happen every year. This is a one time deal...
