many stars: on the deck of the bow, on the splash board
above the wheel, and 2 huge fancily painted stars on
the coverings to her z-drives(all pre-layup, so there
may be changes now) But none on the cranks. The Natchez
has a simple red star, the Julia Belle had a white star
on a red crank, which I believe has been replaced by a
white crank. Probably the most famous acorn in recent
history was originally on the Queen City. Doc got it
and placed it on the roof bell of the various boats he
served as Master: the Avalon, DQ, Belle, Natchez. It is
now in his home. All of the Natchez' acorns have been
made by Larry Walker, a great acorn-maker, cub pilot,
and river rat in Cincinnati. In the older days, the
acorns were of various colors. Today they all seem to
be red and gold. Anybody know why? ...
