For the first time in decades Central Indiana has a stunning paddle wheel boat roaming the Whie River

Captain Michael McRee, founder of Broad Ripple Boat Company, has more than 35 years of experience navigating rivers throughout the United States. He is a visionary craftsman who, through longs hours of hard work and sweat, resurrected the Perseverance II.

After three long years of salvaging this abandoned paddleboat, his work paid off. He salvaged the Perserverance II and now it's Central Indiana's only paddleboat. The Perserverance II was named after her predecessor who roamed the White River over 100 years ago.
