anyone checked out the boblo boat this season?

it's really getting to a point where it's going to be hard to salvage it.

sad.

I hear it was purchased by someone out of state and they are moving it to the hudson river...at least one of them.

I know one was called the St. Clair and I can't remember the other ones name.

I believe it's the St. Clair that will be going to the Hudson.

I loved the Boblo boat. I remember they had music and dancing on it. It was a blast......they used to pick us up in Wyandotte at Bishop Park.

Well, you know I'm old enough to have been on it! <_<
Great memories....My girls would love it!

They used to use it for cruises or something.......I remember we won tickets and went on for a night ride.....Had a blast. Everybody was drinking and dancing. Actually ran into people I grew up with on it that night..

I remember looking down the center of the ships, so you could see the pistons and crankshaft working. They were huge to a little kid.

I heard that the owner of the island wanted to buy it but I think someone else did. I hear he was going to bring it back to the island and fix her up, make it a restaurant type of thing to keep its history.But like I said I don't know for sure.
