Ste Claire, Boblo Boat

The Ste Claire was one of two boats that ran from Detroit down to Boblo Island where an amusement park was located. It is now in the process of being renovated. Read more about it here. Read about the Columbia, the other Boblo boat here. It's headed eventually for the Hudson River in NY.

The Ste Claire is currently docked at the new and still unfinished Tri-Centennial Urban State Park in Downtown Detroitl.

I can just see people either on their way to having a good time or on their way back home, filled with good memories.

Wow, does that bring back memories! Nice shots.

Super shots of the boat. Lots of info. Too bad Boblo Island is now private.

Thanks so much Lynette, R&R and North Bay for your kind and interesting comments. Many people are coming to visit the boat that has so many happy memories for them, Biker Buddy included. Yes, wouldn't it be nice to get it going again? I was not around to have good memories of Boblo.
