When I was editing the video on the DQ 75th Anniv, I obtained some film footage of the "River Queen" sunk but not lost from view. I can scan a frame or two and post if anyone is interested. The film belongs to Bill Warrick and may be included in the video he's producing now on riverboat history. I didn't use it due to time constraints but it's very good footage.
Also, wasn't the Gordon C. Greene the same boat that was in Bradenton, FL for awhile as a restaurant? If so, how and when did it get there and depart from there? Did it go from Bradenton back to the Mississippi River? And, was it boarded up like the DQ for it's towing to and from Florida across the Gulf of Mexico? -Jim Herron
