*NEW SOUTH Boilers*
Morning, Steamboating colleagues:
Frank is on the money RE: NEW SOUTH remains and boilers "...on the Kentucky shore opposite Coal Haven for years."

I went over there with both Alan Bates and John Beatty to see them. The boilers classic steamboat in design. Right now I'm a bit 'foggy' remembering only one surviving boiler. John had sent somebody up earlier with gas weed eaters, brush cutters to clear around the boiler I saw. I'm no expert in steam boilers--or any other thing for that matter--but did see the boiler was in pretty precarious condition due to years of rising, falling river water, mud, weeds, vines etc. all around just west of the three surviving ice breakers about half way up the bank on a rather flat area below Route 8.

Like Frank, I lost track of the boiler project for the Cincinnait Historical Society. Capt, Bill Judd may have clearer memories/facts than I do. I visited/talked with John Beatty in his declining year but his thinking was confused, facts mixed up--no fault of his. Who knows? Again, what do I know?
