Hudson River Dayboat FRANCIS SKIDDY c.1859

Posted 11-05-2011 at 03:41 AM by Rex Stewart
Built in 1851, she was the largest and finest sidewheeler that had ever been built for the Hudson River. When finished, she was considered the zenith of steamboat architecture.

The SKIDDY was built for dayline service between New York City and Albany, New York.
Speed was of dire necessity and she made the run 146 miles, with 6 landings, in 7 1/2 hours.
