Well, seeing as how I'm sitting on the JAMES C ECHOLS as she ferries across the Elizabeth River right now, I guess she did sail again. I'm curious about the story behind her though.

Not a real paddle boat. I was on the crew at Lyon Shipyard in Norfolk Virginia that did the conversion to natural gas. It carried people across the Elizabeth River between Norfolk and Portsmouth Virginia. HRT on side is Hampton Roads Transportation, I believe.

I mention of her "natural gas" here

Maybe shes should be in preseved vessels rather than wrecks & relics.

I doubt it is a real paddle boat. Have seen a few dozen fake ones, almost all of them used for excursions. Really tacky.

A pity... I suppose she's a real paddle steamer? As you might know we also got two here at Hamburg for harbour trips. One is a fake and the other is said to be a real one (though built within the last 10 to 15 years I believe). But to me they look kind of displaced here...

I was just guessing -- it was in pretty bad condition upon close examination and looked like something the general public would not flock to.

Cool shot! What happened to her that she's not likely to sail again?
