Goldenrod Showboat Set for Scrapyard

Brett Blume

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – First the Admiral — now the Goldenrod?

The new owners of the century-old Goldenrod Showboat say as soon as the Mississippi River rises high enough, they’re going to float their boat straight to the scrapyard.

A local non-profit group hoping to prevent that have only been able to raise about $28,000—less than half of what they need to buy it back.

The Admiral was torn up and sold for scrap a couple of years ago.
