Would this group really contribute to put a steamboat in service right now?

Default We could put a steamboat in service right now! Here is how.

A young 19 year old man, Dillon Conner, in Hubertus Wisconsin is trying to raise the last funds he needs ($3,000) to get his steamboat on the water and carrying passengers.

He has a "crowd funding" website which I saw advertised on the Julia Belle Swain website.

What better way to feel a little sense of real accomplishment against our ever present goal of promoting active steamboating. Isn't there an old phrase about money and mouths? : )

Just a small contribution from a lot of us would make a difference for him. He has only received $100 thus far.

He does not know me or that I am briinging this to the group's attention. Let's help him out. I admire his initiative and style. Contributions can be made in any amount.

I am contributing $100 today.

There is a great picture gallery of his hard work on the site.
