This has to be the strangest dinner boat in the harbor. It’d be as odd to see a Citroen DS in the Daytona 500.

Now I always knew these were called bateau mouche in French, but I assumed that since “mouche” means “fly,” as in the pesky type you shoo away, I thought there was a joke I was missing. So imagine my surprise when I learned that I Mouche was the name of the shipyard where this type of vessel is built!

I can hallucinate, but my camera doesn’t lie. Does anyone know what this vessel is? It motored through very quickly last spring. Although there were a few passengers, no one seemed to be at the helm, piloted by ghosts?
