The Delta Queen sailed into the sunset after its last stop at New Madrid Wednesday afternoon. The boat, which needs a congressional exemption to the Safety At Sea Act to continue sailing, drew visitors to the riverfront for one last goodbye and notes from the passengers, who agree the paddle wheeler will be missed. Company officials have said they will fight for the exemption so the boat can continue to sail.
