The wooden boat was in operation until 3 bridges were built to link Eureka with the town of Samoa on the north spit of the bay in 1972.
The Madaket was taken out of commission and sold and returned to service as a tourist boat with cocktail cruises. The Madaket was purchased by the Humboldt Bay Maritime Museum in 1983 and underwent an extensive rebuild in 1989.
Operated by Dalene and Leroy Zerlang she continues to offer Champaign and cocktails cruises every summer and is home to the states smallest legally licensed cocktail lounge.
