Default " Pretty As A Steamboat " !

Greetings From New Orlenas !
Years ago , I first heard Capt. " Doc " Hawley use this term and I have often wondered just where or how or why this term originated from . I am not sure if it is one of Capt. " Doc's " originals or if he heard it from some one else ?
Regardless , I can certanly understand why it came into existance and why it is still used !
Smooth Sailing !
