Another great day here at the wharf to report. I spent my day immersed in the very bowels of the Delta Queen, crawling every inch of her ballast, water, and fuel tanks. I emerged from the labyirinth coated in rust and dirt, but I am happy to report all looks good below the water line of the Delta Queen! Nothing more than the usual stuff for the fuel or water tanks, as many of you know, we are due for our 5 year annual Coast Guard Required dry-docking and hull inspection. We are now spending our days preparing the vessel for her trip to Avondale Main Dry dock, hopefully to arrive there on the 29th of July, ( That's the earliest we could get in ) and we expect to be in there about a week. Fear not, I know the hull of the old girl is in good shape, and we shouldn't be delayed long! Can you believe it? Only 8 weeks from today and the Delta Queen is scheduled to depart New Orleans with passengers aboard! Come with us! We will be ready for you! Steamboatin' Lives!
