Hello everyone,sorry about my silence for the last few days but you can understand why. Now that everything is official, let me say they we are happy that Delaware North was the sucessful bidder and we look forward to working with them to bring the steamboatin' way of life back to prominence. I am at home now, finally getting some R&R, and already beginning to formulate a plan to start preparing the Delta Queen to sail. Much work lies ahead, but now we can move forward into the steamboat future with confidence and a sense of direction. I think only good things will come from the folks at Delaware North. Someone posted a message that they hoped the Delta Queen would continue to explore, and I can't reveal details now but I am hoping to submit a plan to our new management in the near future along those lines. Delaware North has already stated that they believe in Historic Restoration, and to that end we will all strive. I hope that we have begun to embark on the grandest steamboat adventure of all time, a once in a life time event the likes of steamboatin hasn't seen since the race between the Natchez and the Robert E. Lee! Long Live the Queens!
