Default Side-Wheel Steamers in Operation?

Hello everyone,

I was doing some searching around the forum, but I didn't find a solid answer, so forgive me if this has been posted before. I am doing research on side-wheel steamboats from the 1800's and am very new to the world of steamboats. I am looking for current boats that are (preferably) still in operation. Even if they are non-operable, that is OK, but again, a boat that is running in the water would make the best subject. I came across the Desert Princess Too in Lake Mead, NV and the Beresford Lady in Florida...does anyone have suggestions for other similar boats in existence? West coast is best, but I'm gathering that the side-wheel is more rare than the stern-paddle method, so I won't be picky!

I really appreciate your time and any pointers you can provide.

Thanks in advance!
