Milwaukee, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- A longtime tour boat in the Duluth-Superior harbor has gotten off to a rocky start in its new home.

The Vista King was sold, at the end of the last boating season, to the Milwaukee Boat Line.

On a webcam feed from the Great Lakes Water Institute in Milwaukee, the Vista King can be seen being pulled from the water for routine maintenance.

Something went wrong with the crane operations, and the boat was dropped back into the water.

Officials said the damage was minimal and will be fixed in time to get the boat operational by sometime in mid-May.
