On 14 August 2014 station WXOW (Home - WXOW News 19 La Crosse, WI) ran a story on the JULIA BELLE SWAIN. They report that if all goes well the nonprofit foundation that owns the old gal hopes to have the boat out begining next June. A public fundraising campaign is in the works to start soon. Some improvements mentioned will be air conditioning the cabin along with a lift to make her ADA compliant. The owner estimates the costs of returning the boat to service as $1.5 million. The story's video clip does show that the she was in drydock when it was filmed.
