A short story which may explain some of my fascination with this boat. My mother was in Jewish Hospital here in Louisville recovering from hand surgery when I saw the boat on the TV in her room. The News anchor on the 6pm news said her new name was to be BONNIE BELLE and interviewed Capt Lloyd Poore the new owner. Being a river fan, I recognised the landing in the picture was in Louisville and ran to the landing to see her! what a 12 year old will do to satisfy their riverboating wanderlust! I thought she was just as pretty as the JULIA BELLE SWAIN and resigned to have her when I grew up. Well, I guess I haven't grown up yet!
