Captain Mike,

Just so you don't feel alone (but in a much different scale) the Star of Louisville (the local dinner boat) had much the same thing happen to her today (again in a much smaller scale). Their wharfboat was listing rather precariously and had a heck of a time being pulled out.

However, Towboat Annies (the floating resturaunt) still has not been moved or dredged under. You wouldn't believe it, the boat is sitting about 5 feet up on the bow and the stern is just about showing the prop on the port side. Looks like she could just fall over. Hope the spuds don't let go or she is a gonner!

Of course, the Str. Belle of Louisville landing is lovingly tended to on a regular basis. They have the river experience to know how to head that mess off at the pass!

Too bad the "Queens" are not out running so you don't have to deal with it.

The river is a place of changes. That is part of the beauty of it!

Thanks for all the news from Robin Street. I love hearing the progress and knowing that all is in the hands of people who care and will continue to care. Phyllis did great things to help the boats have a future. You are doing great things keeping us informed.

As well, you are documenting the resurgence of overnight steamboating on the inland rivers of America.

Be proud! I know not only myself but, all steamboat fans are proud of you and the great crews that are working so diligently to make it happen!

Thank you!
