I will venture a guess as to the name of the boat. It has been more years than I can remember since I saw the boat down there in the weeds. The last time I saw it the cabins were still intact and the wooden pilot wheel was in the pilot house. Iíll admit way back then I was tempted to try to "liberate" the wheel but never got up the nerve to go aboard since I did not know who owned the thing. The Chickasaw was a paddle wheeler that moved stone from the Mulzer stone quarry at Derby, Indiana. I remember seeing her in operation when I was a kid back in the 50í-60ís while fishing on the riverbank. So my vote is for the Chickasaw.
