The Department of State Lands has been informed by an attorney that Christian Lint, the owner of the historic Tourist No. 2, has died.

The ferry took on water and partially sank near the Sixth Street viewing platform in late July. The state announced in August that it would seize the vessel and pursue enforcement action to try to recover some of the costs.
