So, after our brief visit to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, I think we should jump back on our Riverboats. All aboard?
We're just about to pass Smuggler's Cover, now, so I guess we should all stay quiet and keep an eye out for any suspicious looking people... Smuggler's Cove is home to some river pirates and traders of fur.
The Keelboats are actually based on boats used in a couple of television specials - "Davy Crockett's Keel Boat Race" and "Davy Crockett and the River Pirates". The boats were actually abandoned for a while in the Disneyland Parc, as the lack of popularity meant they were not regularly filling capacity. In 2000 they were withdrawn from usage, but when the Molly Brown needed urgent repair (due to an overheated engine) it was decided to bring the Keelboats back into service.
