As summer approaches, owners of a dinner cruise boat hope to have their vessel fixed after an explosion on board earlier this year.
The Belle of Washington was docked in the Washington harbor for the off-season when a compartment on the boat's hull exploded. It twisted the beams holding up the deck, blew out a window, shattered a glass door, and tore through wood paneling.
An assistant for the boat's manager says the repair is taking longer than expected, but it should return around April 16. To be safe, they've canceled all their April reservations and will start the season May 7th.
