If you visited the McGregor riverfront late last week, you may have noticed a new, wooden addition at the docks. The structure, a converted 1973 Holiday Shores houseboat lovingly dubbed the “Sucker Shack,” belongs to Robert Vavra, captain of Maiden Voyage Boat Tours.

Vavra, now in his 10th year in the business and sixth year in McGregor, said he wants the “Sucker Shack” to help establish a physical presence in McGregor when his Maiden Voyage boat is not there.

He spent over five months creating the boat, which he plans to use for storage and to prepare food for his catered tours. The catering will be for his Maiden Voyage tours only, not the public. Vavra also plans to sell hats, trinkets and other souvenirs out of the space and will include a spot for brochures of locals businesses and sites. In addition, it will be a loading area for his boat passengers.

Maiden Voyage tours leave the McGregor riverfront every Monday through Saturday, at 2 p.m., through mid-October. Private charters are also available.
