    Could the American Queen help in the oil cleanup?

    I used to work on the AQ as a server and the photographer. I was thinking, the boat is huge, and the paddle was massive. The paddle didn't power the boat entirely, in fact it was almost for show. Could they attach filters or scoops on the paddlewheel and use the engine power to zig zag across the oil and filter or scoop it?

    If it could work in some way they could use some of the Delta fleet to cleap up.

    Or, I was thinking. If a barge goes down the river like this:

    X--------- . X is the tugboat, the dashes the barge. Could you turn it sideways, put filters or scoops under it and cover a ton of area cleaning?

    Forgive my diagram, it won't show right. But you have the idea. Have it sideways and push it with three tugboats to control it.
