Basic information about the Delta Queen’s situation

May 1, 2009

I’ve recognized that – after almost two years of fighting for the Delta Queen to be saved – still many people don’t even know that the Delta Queen is in danger. When they learn, they first ask: What’s the problem with the Delta Queen?

To answer this question I’ve put together a quick briefing at steamboats.org about the Delta Queen’s situation, why she’s in trouble and how you can help.

Feel free to use this as reference and direct people to this web page when they want to learn about our campaign to save the historic steamboat Delta Queen.
