The Fintry Queen – Dead Again

Unknown to most of the world there is a boat on Okanagan lake that began it’s life as a passenger ferry.  Once the bridge was built across the lake in 1958 the boat was decommissioned for the second time.  It was actually built in Vancouver as a barge but was subsequently cut in pieces and shipped to Kelowna to be resurrected as the passenger ferry.  In 1968 it was rebuilt as a passenger ship and then was converted to a dining boat / floating restaurant.  Since that time different companies have tried to make a business out of it but it has failed once again.  Long live the Fintry Queen!
