Thank you for posting my video here! SAVE THE BOAT!!! I was the stage manager on the boat for William Oakley’s shows during the 1981 season. My wife and I got married on the boat on Monday, August 24, 1981. On Monday, because that was the day we were dark. I learned a lot on the boat during my stay. I sure hope the old girl survives. I was just riding back from St Louis on back roads when I saw something that broke my heart . Partially grounded, lonely in the middle of nowhere, in disrepair……the goldenrod showboat. How could this great lady come to be so neglected and I’ll-used?!! Comments are closed.
