According to Richard McCoy, sometime around 1940, Samuel Hager began construction of a large boat in a lot next to his home on South Boulevard. "His home was a beautiful log cabin style structure that still stands at 4th Street West," he said. "The story goes that he completed the vessel and brought in a large tractor-trailer to haul it to the Ohio River. He launched the boat and headed downstream. Arriving at Lock & Dam #28, the vessel struck the guard wall a bit too hard and sank." Date is unknown.
