Hi, gang:
I don' know nothin' bout' Presidents steerin' them steamboats. I do know that President Theodore (Rough Rider) Roosevelt did operate a big steam shovel on his visit to the then incomplete Panama Canal. Franklin Roosevelt was Secretary of the Navy but...

I shudder to think what Coast Guard and insurance companies would say about passengers steering the DQ--or any other boat/ship--for fun in this day. Wishful thinking.
Cheers,
R. Dale Flick
