Cincinnati Paddlers (Cincy Paddlers) makes an annual after Halloween pilgrimage to the remains of our area’s own “Ghost Ship”. Most recently the Circle Line V, the ship has a storied history which includes service in two world wars, serving as an anti sub warfare experiment platform for Thomas Edison, a tour boat, and a cameo appearance in a Madonna music video before ending up rusting and forgotten in a creek near St. Petersburg KY.
Here’s Queen City Discovery’s post on the ship with awesome details on it’s history.
For the Paddlers, the trip is supposed to be Halloween-esq and some paddlers arrived in costumes and decorated their boats. We of course also had to partake of an after paddle visit to the nearby Skyline…
We launched at Tanner’s creek, near Lawrenceburg, IN and paddled across the Ohio and upriver a bit to the creek. It was about a 4 mile paddle, round trip.
As you might imagine, I grabbed a picture or two….
I also got some video, but I’ll add that in another post.
