Default 2011 Sternwheel Towboat Calendar available

Looking for a great gift idea, or a unique and practical collectible?
Our 2011 Wall Calendar is Here!


For 2011 we continue with the popular sternwheel towboat theme. We always use the best quality photos in our calendars, but we believe the selections for 2011 are the best yet!

Featured Towboats:
Of the 14 boats featured in the calendar, four were originally steamboats, with the oldest being built in 1911. Only three towboats from the calendar exist today, and only one of those is still operational. In the calendar you will read about the sternwheel towboat that collided with the Str. CINCINNATI (later known as the PRESIDENT), resulting in a fatality aboard the CINCINNATI.

The 2011 "Diesel Sternwheel Towboat" calendar features 13 large boat photos printed on heavy card stock (suitable for framing). Each month features a specific boat along with its history, and a complete calendar page with holidays marked. Featured towboats include:

FAYETTEVILLE
CHICKASAW
TENNESSEE
JOHN J. HOOPES
SKIPPER
IRVIN S. COBB
STEEL CITY
WALTER P. DOLLE
DOROTHY
CRITERION
F.L. BOWERS
