The WINIFRED should have been left in her original condition as I knew the rugged little paddlewheeler when she still sported her towboat lines and original engine. Mr. R., the owner in the late 70's, had her made into a "houseboat", and things went down, literally, after that. The boat never looked right after her conversion. To rephrase Alfafa, of the "Our Gang Kids", "They made a sissy out of her."
