Day-Peckinpaugh is expected to be towed to Buffalo at some point in August 2015.   If you live within reach of the Erie Canal, you might want to get shots of her making a highly unusual transit.  Here’s more on the first (2005) phase of D-P’s second life.

Holds shown above were 1) Onrust, 2) SS United States, and 3) Wavertree.  Thanks to all who’ve helped arrange access.

Here’s another interior shot from last year.

And this is a self-indulgent set of photos.
