Built in 1983 in a Mississippi shipyard, the 131-foot paddle-wheeler was cut into sections, then transported by 27 semi-trucks to the captive waters of Lake Conroe at Seven Coves. The craft was reassembled along with finishing touches being added before it was launched as one of the lake’s most recognizable icons.
