A side wheel steamboat with horizontal engines can be hung on center-----a rare occurrence I'm sure---but possible. To her last days of steam the Admiral has a pry bar mounted on the inside wheelhouse bulkhead on the starboard side--Just In Case!

The SP RR Sidewheel Ferry Eureka at the California Maritime Museum/NPS pier in San Francisco has a pry bar in place and she was a walking beam side wheel automobile and motorcar ferry.
