Thanks Bob. I've just seen pictures of it online and Google maps, it doesn't look like it would be easy to get a view of it from land, but it looks like it was a pretty large boat and at one time had to have been a nice one as well.

I guess I never introduced myself on here, I am a young-ish guy (be 39 in a couple weeks), and my only experience with steamboats and sternwheelers is an appreciation from growing up on the banks of the Kanawha river in WV. I used to love watching the PA Denny, Major, Roy C, and the other Charleston area sternwheelers come rolling past my house. I've really enjoyed reading these forums since I joined!
