Yes, that's the "old" Tule Princess, built by Dave Sarlin, VERY nicely built, and we believe to be the newest walking beam boat afloat.
Tom's right, you do need a crew to run her, as the guy watching the engine is too busy to pilot! I don't remember if she was wood or oil or both. I hope she finds a good home.

PS Pic of her on the Sacramento Delta, many years ago, the boat she's passing looks like my old boat, Mikahala, after I sold it (dumb, dumb, dumb!!!--but we were broke & I thought I was doing the right thing for the boat. Ooops)
