Sinking the General Zebulon Pike.

A while back I had ask if anyone had any info on when & how this boat was sunk for scuba divers to enjoy.
I found this video on facebook the other day, pretty interesting to see it go down.

Except the cruise boat is stored on Bass Pro Shops property in Nixa. What they sunk never cruised the lake, or wasn't even a watercraft. It was a replica of a paddle wheeler that was used for the dock, and ticket boxoffice. The actual cruise boat was the Zebulon Pike, and the dock that looked like a boat was named the General Pike.

Yes, I pass by the Zebulon Pike all the time in Nixa.
There has been much discussion in the scuba diving community as to what the name of the sunken boat/dive site that is at the bottom of the lake is & when & how it got there. Everyone knows the dive site as the Zebulon Pike, This video shows/tells the story of how it got there.
We were hoping they would sink the Zeb that is now in Nixa, doesn't look like that is going to happen now.
