New member, new boater.

Been reading this forum a while now and have pulled some great info and insight. Wondering if there are any other River Cruisers out there...
Looking forward to second season with the "new" boat on the Erie Canal.The River Cruiser was only made two years as far as I can tell. Seems rather rare model. Too bad, she's a great boat.

Welcome aboard!! I can't be certain, but I believe the Admiral and I, while on our (normally) yearly trip from Cincy down to Madison, In. on the Ohio R. spotted a River Cruiser.

It's a 34. I'll paint mine first and let you know. Bill, the boat came from the Ohio River in '08 to the previous owner. I've had her almost a year now.
