Well a friend dropped off a nice little display piece he put together for me. A few years ago he acquired the lease to restore and operate the African Queen. As part of the restoration there were numerous pieces removed and replaced. I got a piece of the top rail, side rail (african mahogany), rub rail (hawser), and a small piece of hull plating where the plates are rivited together. All displayed around a picture of Bogart and Hepburn. A very cool gift if you ask me.

Did you get enough to restore it? People ask me where I got my T, I tell them I found it on the ranch in the sage brush. They ask if it was in the condition it is now and I tell them that I it was not complete and I had to replace part of it because it was in bad condition. They then ask what I did find, at that point I tell them that I found the radiator shell and it was the part I had to replace as it was too rusty.

David,

One of the best movies ever. And the book was even better.
