Yes, the working river exhibits will be in the Newport area, just as in '03.

Sorry to say that we will not be there with the BARBARA H this time. We had a dry-dock inspection 1 year ago, and the Coast Guard decided not to renew our Attraction Vessel certificate due to some thin hull plating. We are now trying to qualify for a federal grant to cover the $300K replating job. We should know by late October whether we get the grant or not. Assuming we get the grant, we would then need to raise half of the funds from other donations, as it is a "matching" grant. We will keep y'all posted....
