American Queen resumes sailing after repairs to rock damage
The American Queen sailed from Nashville a day late following what the American Queen Steamboat Co. said were minor repairs after 'grazing a rock' Saturday morning on the Cumberland River.

The paddlewheeler departed Sunday afternoon at 3 following clearance to sail by the US Coast Guard, the company said in a statement to Seatrade Insider.

Passengers for the cruise to Chattanooga were able to embark on time while the repairs were made.

American Queen had been due to depart Nashville late Saturday afternoon.
