Subject: Re: 1976 Press Release-Naming the MQ


Somehow I can see Fred Way saying Mississippi is a good
luck word with a twinkle in his eye, because he knew
the old superstition about not naming boats beginning
with M, the 13th letter of the alphabet. He did receive
some grief from the company when he referred to the MQ
in the stories of her many misadventures as the
"Miss-Q". But Fred Way could get by with it. There
have been many other nicknames given to the MQ over the
years, but best not posted for public consumption
