Detroiter's recall their fondest Bob-Lo Memories


Channel 4 interview, finding a new home for the Bob-Lo Boat Ste. Claire.


Wed like to thank all of the support we received after the article about the Columbia came out last week.  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.  

Like Motown the Bob-Lo Boat is an important part of Detroit's history. The Bob-Lo Boat Restoration Project is committed to Detroit and the restoration of the Bob-Lo Boat Ste. Claire.
