Jim, et al: 1968 seems about right. I was on the wharf boat several times but never had any business there. In retrospect I wonder how that big roof was framed. That is a longish span (width of wharf) at over 50 feet without any columns...free-span roof. Musta been a zillion rafters up there. Seems to me that was a corrugated iron roof...not very light in my book. Anybody know? Pulling it in and sparring it out had to be a real chore. Was the wharf boat yet another product of the fertile brain of Jesse Hughes? Cap'n Walnut.
