Default CHATTANOOGA STAR For Sale On EBAY

The CHATTANOOGA STAR, which had been scheduled to participate in TALL STACKS this year, is now being offered for sale on EBAY, under the heading of PADDLEWHEELER/PASSENGER BOAT. I am very sorry that the Hosemann brothers (Capts. Pete and Mike) have ceased operations with their fine little sidewheeler, as they were doing great things in the realm of educating the general public (and youngsters especially) in all facets of river history. See www.Rivertrek.org for photos and information on the boat plus logs of cruises, etc. Thanks to them for all their good work, well done. And I will always remember, with much gratitude, the kindness of Pete and Mike's late mother, Mary Hosemann, who was so hospitable to my parents and me aboard the old steamer MAMIE S. BARRETT, when the family operated her as a restaurant at Vicksburg in 1988. True river people and happy to give!
