'Ghost' ship docks in Caddo Lake

CADDO LAKE, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas Steamboat Cruise Company has temporarily docked a ship because of the U.S. Coast Guard.

The owners of Caddo Lake's Graceful Ghost steamboat said the Coast Guard told them that until the boat passes a stability test, it could only carry six passengers at a time.

Owners say the graceful ghost has carried 35 passengers for 17 years without incident or accident.

The boat will remain docked until the issue is resolved with the Coast Guard.
