What about the Bob Bosworth collection near Point Pleasant? Is it still afloat? When I was "Assistant to the Art Director" for the TV special, CENTENNIAL, the Art Direstor and I rummaged through that fleet and came-near buying the DUNCAN BRUCE for the production that I would receive after the filming. However, fate interveined and the AD was fired for "spending too much money" and both my Hollywood career and ownership of the Drunken Duncan slid down the tube.

There are countless small boat fleets all over the rivers that I enjoy, too. Adams Boatyard above Madison, IN at Brooksburg has a fine collection of mouldering houseboats, and the USCG Tender SYCAMORE also reposes in the Adams yard.
