Was once EXCELLENT, but no more. Closed. Years of inadequate funding has led to great neglect. Practically abandoned. VERY SAD. Used to be a must see.

If you like to see relics, stop by. The boat can't get moved out of it's river graveyard. At low tide you'll see massive rusted holes in the hull. It's definitely a surprise to see such a boat in this area.
