The majestic Queen Mary II looms above the marina at the Charleston Maritime Center in South Carolina.  The giant ship is in the process of making a U-turn, prior to berthing at a pier just to the east.  Ken Rowe's steel trawler, CAREB, is in the foreground, dwarfed by the ocean liner.

Paddlewheel steamship "American Queen" on the Mississippi River

Paddlewheel steamship "Delta Queen" on the Mississippi River.  Originally, the DQ plied the waters between Sacramento and San Francisco along with her sistership, the Delta King.  During World War II, the U.S. Navy used the ships as troop transports in the SF Bay Area.  The Greene family purchased the Queen and had her towed through the Pacific Ocean via the Panama Canal to the Mississippi River system, where she was totally renovated and put into passenger service.  While her hull is steel, the Queen's superstructure is wooden, and it required Congressional action to permit her to continue carrying overnight passengers.  During the past year, it appeared that the DQ would end up as a floating hotel/restaurant (the Delta King was converted to restaurant use decades ago and many engine parts used to keep the Delta Queen going.  The Queen has a large and devoted following of seasoned travelers who have yet to give up on efforts to keep the steamship in active service.
