DPC MATEUR still is...
 
3 Attachment(s)
Contrary to reports of her cutting up, the MATEUR is still around. She is beached along with the T.G.GEROW at Hamms Happy Harbor on the Illinois River just above Peoria. She is in the same location, situation as the last time I passed her on the SPIRIT OF PEORIA Starved Rock trip a couple years ago. Her fate is probably sealed, but at least she's still there. The CASINO ROCK ISLAND and dredge OCKERSON are afloat inside the marina. The CRI looks to be in good shape on the exterior, no idea of the interior. Supposedly these two boats are for sale, but trying to locate the owner (Jumer) or representatives is a pretty futile effort now. The marina owner is of no help either. 3 shots of the CRI, none available of the MATEUR.

Why is locating Jumer a futile effort?

Good question
 
First of all, the marina owner isn't giving out ownership info apparently. Second, it is presumed that the boats are still owned by the Jumer family since they weren't included in the Delaware North sale. But trying to locate family members is difficult, especially the ones with the power to sell the boat. Also, I haven't seen any ads offering the boat for sale, has anyone?
