Glass Bottom Boat Replica Installed

Looks like a lion in it’s cage, all chained up . .new swan boat

A replica of the glass-bottom swan boats that once plied the shallows around Lovers Point in Pacific Grove has been put on display there by the Pacific Grove Heritage Society.

The swan boat was christened the Margruss, after Margaret and Russell Sprague.

The project was financed by $14,000 in donations to the society, Honegger said. The Heritage Society plans to place a plaque with the boat and a ceremony may be held in July.

I remember taking rides in the originals. That would be a great thing to have back again.swan boat postcard
