January 19, 2012 Update:
The AMERICAN QUEEN safely entered drydock at Louisiana’s Bollinger Shipyard to have her undersides pressure cleaned and painted. Despite marine growth from the boat’s three year layup, her hull is in excellent condition. Special thanks to Tim Rubacky and Christopher Kyte for providing these interesting new images.
January 18, 2012: Beginning a new phase of her resurrection for Memphis-based Great American Steamboat Company, the 420 foot AMERICAN QUEEN left her berth at Louisiana’s Bollinger Shipyard to be drydocked, following a complete restoration and painting of her upper hull and superstructure. The 436 passenger steamboat, the largest ever built, will be returning to service on April 13, 2012.
