Only 21 cruise ships can make it into port - 1986-08-28
The port can accommodate ships with a draft of 22 feet or less. In other words, no more than 22 feet of a ship can be below the water line, or the vessel risks running aground. The pickings, Travis acknowledges, will be slim.
The Boheme is one of those vessels (it's listed first on the chart at right) and it was sold last week. Commodore Cruise Lines, the ship's former owner, has not said who purchased the ship, but has said the Boheme will leave Tampa Bay after completing a week of repairs on Sept. 13.
