Hello folks, I'm beat! I spent most of the day stripping the old tile off of the floor in the Mqs crew mess. Everything else goes well, I am now living in the Captains room on the Delta Queen, and it feels like home. The river is on a slow fall and I continually have to slack off the lines on all three boats to keep them from hanging up on the wharf. River traffic is very heavy, ships, tugs everything moving North and South, a good sign I suppose. I have to wonder how much Old Man River can hold. We may move the boats next week, take the MQ out under her own power, move the Delta Queen out by tug, and flip the MQ around and reland at Robin ST. in the Dqs spot, facing downstream, so we can finish painting the outboard side of the vessel. And folks, she is looking great! Thank you all for your devotion, we will make this a special steamboat year for you! And for you crewmembers out there, we are looking forward to seeing you all again soon! And we do mean, you all!
