This vessel started its life in 1960 Named "The Canadian" and was built as a paddlewheeler, simulating the experience early Americans had on great rivers like the Hudson and the Mississippi. She was a ride vessel for tourists and guests at the Freedom Land Amusement Park in the Bronx, NY. Freedom Land was open between 1960 and 1964. In 1964 the NY worlds fair opened on Long Island and as they say "Timing is Everything;" and Freedomland closed to make way for the Co-Op City Building development.
This vessel then became well known as the "Showboat" berthed at the Showboat Restaurant and Hotel in beautiful Greenwich Harbor, Greenwich, CT. owned and operated by well known Captain Joe Keating. Capt. Joe also at one time owned the "Honey Fitz", later known as "The President" owned by President John F. Kennedy.
