No, she was built at Kahlkes and ran between RI and Davenport, upstream about a mile from the boatyard, and she never strayed from there. The one stack in front of the pilothouse was sure strange, but she never went straight ahead. The pilot needed to see out the sides instead. As the Davenport, she had two stacks. What would they have had to do boilerwise to change that?
