Am I to understand that the Delta Queen and Delta King were built in Scotland, crossed the Atlantic, portaged through the Panama Canal, and serviced the West Coast? I am amazed that the ship, with such a low freeboard, could withstand the open ocean.

Maybe they were brought over in pieces. I have a hard time believing they could cross the Atlantic too.
