The SPIRIT OF PEORIA is 160 x 38 x 4.5 ft. The top of her stacks is 47 ft. above the waterline. She is licensed to carry 428 passengers and was built in 1988 at Walker Shipyard in Paducah. She has wonderful sheer, as the pictures will show. D. James Jumer built her and just as with his CASINO ROCK ISLAND, he had her decorated very tastefully. Capt. Alex Grieves and his father are the fourth owners. The G on the spreader bar represents the G & G Packet Co. In the 3rd picture, that is deckhand Orlando in the boat getting ready to come back aboard. He had been painting the sign on the port side that morning. O has been with the SoP from the beginning, and through all four owners.
