Clarksville Police Department - CPDClarksville, TN – It was a perfect day for a couple, married almost 60 years, to take their houseboat named “Dream Catcher” on the river for a spin.

Shortly after Robert and Yvonne Workman pulled their house boat away from the Clarksville Marina dock on Friday, July, 27th, 2018 about 200 yards into the channel, the right motor shut down. As they tried to restart the motor, something blew up and fire appeared.  The fire occurred around 12:30pm.

Clarksville Fire and Rescue put out the fire on the houseboat named “Dream Catcher”.
