NORFOLK, VA (StarNewsOnline.com) — A lovely lady has left town for a $100,000 facelift. And she’s not afraid to admit it. The Henrietta III, a riverboat normally docked on the Cape Fear River in downtown Wilmington, has been moved to a dry dock in Norfolk, Va., to undergo some general maintenance and repair work.

She left Jan. 28 for a week-long journey up the Intracoastal Waterway to Colonna’s Shipyard, where regular five-year maintenance will be done to her hull.

The Henrietta was pulled out of the water by the world’s largest crane, according to Helen Ward, vice president of Cape Fear Riverboats, which owns the vessel. Posts on the Henrietta III’s Facebook page show the 385-ton riverboat being moved to a dry dock by the massive traveling lift.
