What a terrific idea, good for them. I like the fact that you can bring you own lunch on board. Back in my days on the BELLE we used to load the boat down with family's bringing their own picnic lunches, then selling them cokes (no beer back then). It was not unusual for those hot afternoon trips to have 800 people. Sometime or the other the powers that be decided the boat could make more money if picnic lunches were banned and the only food allowed was food bought on board. I don't know if it was more profitable for the boat but the crowds sure deminished.
