Mr. George Notter, the boat builder, is now completing a staunch new steamer for the Black Rock & Fort Erie Ferry Co. It is considerably larger than the old boat, being 108 ft. long and 24 ft. beam, with a carrying capacity of 500 persons. There will be 2 comfortable enclosed cabins 30 by 12 ft. in dimensions for the accommodation of the passengers, and the upper deck is to be guarded by a heavy railing around the edges and provided with seats. The new boat will be launched early next week and the owner expect her to be ready for use by the first of January. The cost will be nearly $12,000.
