*Roar of the boilers, hiss of the steam*
Hi, Dan, Keith and Frank,
I agree with Frank on this one RE: the "like" button. A picture you don't see much now in this day and age. The white-hot fire tells it all. I could almost hear the roar of the boilers, hiss of the steam. Keep these photos coming if you can. We need more first-hand photos, reports on the BELLE. Question: Do the guys working around the boilers today wear goggles to ward off the bright glow when looking in to check things out? I remember seeing the boiler crews on old ocean steamships wear goggles while they were working. They even warned me to "Not look in without protective goggles." Well, what do I know?
