Yes, I was involved in restoring the Mary Woods No. 2. Good fortune sent a tornado to destroy the imitation Schlock that had been mis-applied to a good-looking little towboat by someone. My part was to advise the restorers about her probable appearance at the time she was retired. The restorers got rid of the house-porch turned columns and the plywood and masonite jigsaw work and a lot of other trash. Much evidence of her steam days remained, such as engineroom bell hangers, cylinder timbers, the fireman's jail-like "stateroom" and other items. I still have the prospectus for this work.
