Investor may bring Delta Queen back to Cincinnati

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- An investor is looking to buy the Delta Queen in a move that could bring her back to Cincinnati.

Businessman Cornel Martin wants to buy the historic boat which is currently shuttered in Chattanooga.

He will make the purchase and spend $6 to 7 million in repairs if Congress votes to allow the paddle wheeler to once again carry guests overnight.

Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown is pushing the bill and believes it will pass this summer.

Once repairs are complete the boat would likely move to a new port.

Cincinnati and St. Louis are the top contenders.
