    Jim, Barry Griffith might know. I'm not sure if he is still on this forum. You could post and reach him on my Gas & Diesel Sternwheel Boat group on facebook. He worked for Hines.

    Ok, thanks. So I assume Blender has CAD features built into it for drawing the 3D model, then applying textures.

    Jens, Your 3D model is EXCELLENT !! Wunderbar!

    Did you use a specific CAD software to create the geometry, then import into Blender? Or was it all done in Blender?

    Alan,
    Thanks for that info on gross and net tonnage. Subchapter G sounds like real exciting reading material (??). If they have a "Subchapter G For Dummies" book, I could probably figure it out,...

    Tom,
    My guess is it stands for Capt. "Hamilton" (?)
    That's nice if they are going to keep the "H" there in his honor. A bright red star would look nice there as well.

    Jim,
    I'm not sure, but it may be the same Zachary Taylor that you were on. I guess it was extensively rebuilt in 1962. The price had dropped to $29,500 before the auction. I'm not related to the...

    Maybe they are doing it to reduce miscellaneous costs, such as storage fees for those engines(?).. Maybe DQSC could borrow the DK hardware back from the museums if they were in dire need for them?

    Tom,
    I think in Kevin's original posting he was asking for the oldest sternwheel steamboat. I'm guessing by your description that the BALTIMORE is a steam single-screw hawser tug, or ship tender.

    Sam,
    I heard that the WINIFRED was auctioned for only $2500 about a year ago. It would be a nice "project" boat if the hull were in better shape. Hope someone can save it, although there is little...
