Channel 4 interview, finding a new home for the
Bob-Lo Boat Ste. Claire.
PROJECT UPDATE 07/06/2015
We’d like to thank all of the support we
received after the article about the Columbia
came out. Our architectural firm is
nearing the end of design / development and
construction drawings phase. We have spent the
bulk of our time doing demolition and exposing
the ship to her bare skeletal structure. We
plan on choosing a contractor in the next couple
of weeks and starting the structural work soon
afterwards. This will include
reinforcing/replacing the steel frame and adding
new joist throughout the entire the ship to make
her meet current day codes. Out biggest obstacle
is finding a new home for the Ste. Claire. We
need to move from our current location due to
work being done on the shore line. The move will
occur this summer. Once again, thank you for all
of your support.
Keep visiting the Bob-Lo Boat website for
updates on the progress and/or join our Facebook
group Captain Boblo.
