NEWPORT, AR (KAIT) - Joan Ellison with Arkansas State Parks says a committee decided it was not economically feasible to rebuild the Jackson County steamboat.
As you may recall, the Mary Woods II sank last January.
At first, it was believed vandals were to blame, but investigators determined a leaky pipe was to blame.
The boat will be salvaged and parts of it will be put up for sale.
Money received from the sale will go to building a new Visitor's Center at the Jacksonport Park.
