I found this amazing array of cables roaming around at midnight on the deck of the Delta Queen. I had to lie flat on my back to get the combination just right. Great fun.
The renown classic rock song “Proud Mary” written by American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Fogerty, was written about this vessel.
The Delta Queen and her identical twin the Delta King – called the million dollar boats – were fabricated from 1924 to 1927 on the River Clyde at the William Denny & Brothers Ltd., in California Dumbarton, Scotland and assembled that same year at Banner Island Shipyard in Stockton. The machinery was built by William Denny & Brothers Ltd., Dumbarton, Scotland. The paddlewheel shaft and the cranks were forged at Krupp Stahlwerke AG, Germany. The boats were completed on May 20, 1927.
