Hi, Ted:
Hey, good point about the acorns and five pointed stars. I'd plumb forgotten about them. See what we learn on steamboats.org.

Here's another link, though not steamboat/river related. Years ago as a kid and young sailor around ships, I'd now and then see real 'old salts' with those stars tatooed on their ear lobes. This as a tailsman against bad luck. Copper bracelets around the wrists and ankles were worn to ward off arthritis/rheumatism. The acorn...GASP!...also has another ancient symbolism that I won't get into now!
Cheers,
R. Dale Flick
