I work on the lakes and go by Boblo almost every day and as a young tug captain I've towed the two Boblo boats around. Towed one from Detroit to Toledo when some dentist turned it into a haunted boat.

I work with a couple of guys who used to work on those boats. They partied pretty hard. And one of my professors at the academy was captain on there when the blacks infiltrated and rioted. He was a big dude and swept away cgroups of them like it was a video game.

Yes indeed I grew up in Detroit and they used to take us to Boblo Island every school year for a class trip. It was like the biggest thing that ever happened in my life when I was a kid. Not saying much I know .. but we were poor folk.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24513273


Same here...Hard to believe now with all the hyped
things kids can do NOW....that a ride on a big boat to an
amusement park would be that big a deal, but it really
was so! Those were the days when the MO-TOWN SOUND was
gaining popularity and there was electricity in the air.
I worked a whole spring to save the money for a group
of 12 friends to go to Boblo for my birthday. It was
such a great time and I'll never forget it!

Thanks for the memories, OP!

cheers

Re: Anyone remember going to BOBLO Island???
I grew up on Grosse Ile, on the river facing boblo and Amesthburg. Do you remember the WILD MOUSE ?( Wooden Roller coaster). Boblo is now full of big homes. BAD NEWS: DUFFYS TAVERN ON THE RIVER WAS TORN DOWN RECENTLY as was Anderdons.
Blacks messed up Boblo after AAA insurance bought it. Reckless negroid behavior made white people stop going. I used to see the Yoof throwing chairs over board from the Columbia ( boblo boat now in ruins) and running wild on the island knocking over garbage cans. Anybody from Downriver on board here ?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74937942


I was just telling my family

You couldn't even have a Boblo now

People are insane
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 58675379

I'm a bit confused... I personally haven't visited, but isn't there tons of Detroiters visiting the casinos in Windsor ?

How is that all going?
