Carmen,

I have been wondering what happened to that boat since she left Sarasota, Florida years ago.

The dream I have is to make an old fashioned showboat and she would be the push boat. So you would effectively have two vessels operating simultaniously in the same operation. Dinner cruises on the boat and shows on the barge. The barge would have the living accomodations for the crew and entertainers as well as the kitchen and machine shop.

Think of how much money could be made if both were operating at the same time! Small town Ohio Rver and Upper Mississipi River would be the ports of call. I have put too much time, thought, and planning in this one for it not to ever happen.

This said, I wonder where I would find investors to buy the RIVER QUEEN and to get the barge built?

Looks like I might have alot of time on my hands in the coming years....so now is the time to start planning!

Now all I need is money!

~Travis~
