With the fear of killing this tread I will still venture to quote from the 1946 Inland River Record: " Diesel Towboat, Steel Hull, Sternwheeler. b. Neville Island, Pa by Dravo Corporation, 1930. 72.2 x 16 x 4. 150 hp. diesel. Originally operated by Dravo until sold to Capt. John M Hysmith, Pittsburgh, Pa. in Feb 1937 to replace the steam towboat R.J. HESLOP which had burned Dec., 4 1936."
