Default CITY OF NEW ORLEANS

Matt Dow posted a pix on Facebook of the new name on the former Casino Rock Island. This was the name his grandfather Capt. Wilbur Dow announced at S&D back in 1990 for a dinner boat which did not get off the drawing board then. But the name has survived for this soon-to-be dinner boat/charter. Matt has been flying back and forth between Wood River and NOLA in anticipation of riding the CNO as she is being towed to NOLA and her Industrial Canal spot for her renovation, and it appears today is finally the day she'll be leaving. So this is the third UMR gambling boat being repurposed as a functioning boat, by my count (Emerald Lady/Belle of Cincinnati, Mississippi Belle II/Savannah something...and the Casino Rock Island/City of New Orleans).
