Lakefront yacht to become dinner cruise

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The yacht docked at the Lake Charles lakefront marina will soon be a restaurant.

The 105 foot vessel, Lady of the Lake, will be certified to carry 150 people.

"Try to use it for dinner cruises and private parties, weddings and just sight-seeing tours," Jim Mistratta owner of the yacht.

The three story yacht has a kitchen, bars, bathrooms and, of course, decks.

"It comes complete," Mistratta said. "We'll just have to furnish it."

Mistratta said the yacht will not be open to the public until next year.

Lady of the Lake has been at the marina since Thursday, Nov. 10 and Mistratta said when he arrived to the boat Saturday morning, the gates to the boat were open.

"We've got cameras on board and found out we had a little visitor last night [Friday, Nov. 11]," he said.

The surveillance cameras revealed a white male opening the gate to the boat, walking up the ship's stairs talking on his cellphone. Later on in the video, the man peeked through windows and tested doors. He also took a picture with his cellphone of the surveillance camera.

"I guess he's not real concerned that he's trespassing and attempting to break in a vessel," Mistratta said.

If anyone has any information on the intruder, call the Lake Charles Police Department at 337-491-1311.

    Sinkholes in the road are an issue all over Lake Charles and a pretty common sight in the Downtown area. Drivers usually have to dodge the cones, especially on Division Street. If you drive down the stretch of Division Street, in between Ryan and Bilbo, you're probably used to avoiding a sinkhole. The most recent one was fixed Tuesday, caused by a cracked drainage line under the street where water seeped out and created a void. “They just go in, cut out a section and pour as...
