Subject: Re: Delta Queen Smoke - Sanding Flues?


It used to be that belching smoke was the prerequisite for a good steamboat photograph, but, today, all it does is say "Pollution". I cannot imagine that such a display, especially in front of all those spectators and cameras, was deliberate. It is bad PR. I sure wouldn't authorize smoking up the place if I had the say-so. It had to be that the burners were going full blast for the race and there was a sudden reduction in steam so the Fireman had not yet adjusted his fires. Was that pic taken just after the DQ crossed the Finish Line? If so, then my theory holds water.
