Just about money??? Money is why the boats are in business, not just to provide a quaint attraction for tourists to watch but not ride.
The boats, like the rest of us, are not making any or little money. My landlord has been very understanding of this. Sounds like the GVHA, the boats landlord, is not.
Lucky for Ralmax, they have deep pockets and have a business that is not likely that affected by the current mess. Probably the money they put up is small change to them. They can afford to wait a few years to see a return on their investment.
