Spirit sold, heads to Louisiana!

Captain Dick & Fancy Nancy regret to inform friends and customers that they have sold the Spirit of West Virginia to a gentleman in Louisiana. After four seasons in the charter boat business we had to make the painful decision to sell our beloved sternwheeler because we both have full time jobs and kids and grandkids that live out of town.   Owning a sternwheel boat fulfilled a life time dream and we were proud to play a small part in the river history of West Virginia especially during the Sesquicentennial, our 150th birthday!

  Many thanks to all the loyal customers and volunteers who helped us achieve this dream. We both hope to see you all again somewhere on the Great Kanawha!
