Glad you are getting a few moments peace. I know the stress of bringing a boat out, having been on the crew of the Str. Belle of Louisville for several years as we brought her out from her winter respite. Gee, and everyone thought I only played the calliope! On the excursion boats side of things, you wear many hats...just depends on the need of the moment. I had many great moments, with many hats, on-board the Str. Belle of Louisville.

I can only imagine what it is like coordinating the end of layup for a vessel the size of the Str. Mississippi Queen.

Know that all riverfans are behind you all the way and very proud of the work you are doing! Not to mention the work of a very dedicated crew in New Orleans. My hat(s) off to you!

Once you get a good rest, I hope you'll be ready to get the Str. Delta Queen ready for us. We are all excited about her return as well!

Just a breif note of thanks....get some rest!
