Default Last bagged boiler

Unfortunately the PRESIDENT wasn't the last steamboat to have a bagged boiler. The NATCHEZ did, during a summer when I was working on her. In fact, I think both boilers were bagged in different years, which led to them eventually being replaced. We had several layups during my 11 summers for boiler repairs, so I don't remember the exact years.
