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?!!
