Between 1973 and 1980 the Magic kingdom had two riverboats. One was damaged in 1980 during dry-dock. Their names were the Richard F Irvine and the Admiral Joe Fowler Riverboats.
The Admiral Joe was the one damaged and never replaced.
The Richard Irvine was completely rebuilt and renamed the Liberty Belle.
The Liberty Belle underwent an extensive refurb between September 2005 to September 2006
