July 2014:

Two Columbus ships expected to be demolished - Caller-Times

From 2001:

John Tedesco » Riding out the storm; Bad luck, or mismanagement, dogs Columbus replica fleet

Such a shame about the ships. I remember when they came to CC when I was a kid, but they always had that one out there tied up to the T-Head and I'm sure it's still there.
