...because the cost of tickets were a little steep. Charge for less and get more people on the boat. The Lanchester theory would be good practice for this application.

Don't get the two boats confused....

Today's article is talking about the Columbia, whereas the Ste. Claire is the boat that was open for tours in Windsor and River Rouge last summer and through the fall. Its Nautical Nightmare haunted boat brought in some $300,000! The Ste. Claire project is still a go, although as you can see in this article published last week, it's still got some bumps to clear: http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs .dll/article?AID=/20060112/NEW S05/60112001

I thought one of them was restored in ohio or somewhere. I did not realize that they are both still here.

How to Identify the Bob-Lo Boats.

1. The Ste. Claire is the one with the bridge wings.

2. There is no step two.

The Ste. Claire is the one that was in Lorain, Ohio. The owners brought it back to Windsor and Detroit last summer.
