We went on the Texas Pride a couple of times enjoyed playing black jack.This boat here sure is alot smaller than the Texas Pride , When they get her up and running we will sureley be there. 20 minutes is alot shorter than 3.5 hrs to scratch the itch !

Yes that's what it is, however, the boat has been seized by the feds and still just waiting I suppose. It was supposed to open like September then they started pushing it back. Where that tent is they were supposed to make a big bingo hall and other entertainment there from what I understand. I don't know if it will ever leave the dock or not. These people put a lot more work in then the others, but I think they ran out of money and it got seized by the feds for that. Most that is hearsay but they had a write up in the facts a while back about it.

When they were building/outfitting this boat the electric company which ran the lines up went over budget, they charged the boat XXXX amount and the boat wouldn't pay, so the feds siezed it. The boat says they've now paid and just waiting for the go ahead.
