With the recent announcement that the current Maid of the Mist steamboat Corporation has lost their lease to operate sightseeing tours below the falls from the Canadian side of the border I have to wonder what will happen to the two larger 600 passenger Maid of the Mist boats. Some might not be aware, that these boats were first built above the gorge than disassembled and transported in pieces to the Maid of the Mist landing then reassembled on the dock. Will they be cut up again and transported to the street above the gorge? Or will these boats possibly be delivered downriver to Lake Ontario like the one that successfully navigated on June 6, 1841 the fiercest stretch of water in eastern North America..the lower treacherous rapids. Stay tuned we should know the answer by the end of the year.
