Subject: Re: The Captains Log


The harbor towboats to which Capt. Mike referred had
only 800 hp and were able to get the job done at Robin
St. that time. If a situation is more difficult, there
are the harbor tugs, which are used to manuever the
ships in and out of docking space, which can be
employed and they are much more powerful. An unrelated
note about wheelwash: occasionally when making a turn,
the Natchez gets in her own wash and rocks rather
obviously. It gets the passengers looking around and
wondering what is happening. When the Dukes of
Dixieland were new on the boat, they had a number where
the trombone player used his foot to slide the trombone
while he stood on the other foot. Unfortunately he was
performing this during one of these wheelwash turns -
last time he did that on the boat! .
