Default Riverboat Becky Thatcher sank in Pittsburgh PA.

Sad to see. We used to have the Becky Thatcher here in Marietta. It was a fine dinning restaurant. Very nice. Ritzy for sure.

Here are pics of it from this morning in Pittsburgh:

I still have not heard what caused her to sink. Old boats can start taking on water for so many different reasons that it seems impossible to guess when might have happened. Hopefully they will publish a report on the cause once they get her raised and out of the water.
The new owner bought her late last summer and had her moved to Pittsburgh last October. Sad to see for sure.

One of the that reports I read was that a barge may have hit it, they wouldn't know until they could look at the hull.

The owner only had liability insurance, so he is SOL big time.
