Bob and Ted all you say is true. Now, imagine doing what you both describe with just a wood and iron sternwheel out back and 1200 horsepower to move you along. What is the old saying, iron men on wooden boats? It certainly increases in my mind the stature of the Wally Blices, Harry Loudens, Oren Russells, Eugene Hamptons, Joe Hughes, "Chick" Lucases, Fontain Johnsons, Norman Hillmans, Charles Youngs, et.al. of the river.
