Bring the Pearl to St. Cloud

Toho Riverboat Adventures is bringing The Pearl to St. Cloud, Florida. Captain Stitch has funded this project on his own through savings, private investors, and small loans. Along the way there have been unexpected expenses that Captain Stitch needs help with!
On the last stretch of this trip there has been upwards of $80,000 worth of unexpected permits, crane fees, and trucking fees that are preventing The Pearl from coming home. Help us help Captain Stitch raise the last bit of money to bring a riverboat to St. Cloud.
Toho Riverboat Adventures was started in 2020 with a dream of offering an escape for residents of St. Cloud. Giving locals access to the lakefront in a way that most people without boats don't get to experience. From sunset cruises to tours on goat island Toho Riverboats was founded with the intention to bring recreation to residents and enhance the St. Cloud Lakefront. This dream is now being furthered with The Pearl. A riverboat has not been in the St. Cloud lakefront in over 40 years and Captain Stitch wants to bring back the picturesque views of a grand riverboat sitting on the lakefront skyline.
St. Cloud Main Street has been working with Captain Stitch over the past 6 months to make this vision a reality. On this last stretch of the journey we want to help Captain Stitch with the unexpected expenses that have come up. In the event we cannot bring the boat home for some reason all money will be refunded from this campaign.
**9/14 update ** Captain Stitch has announced that permits for transportation have been approved! We are so close to bringing The Pearl home.
