    Chief Engineer (and museum board member) Kenny Howe is in New Orleans as we speak to examine what "goodies" will be suitable for the Howard Steamboat Museum. Since we recently lost out on one of the WAKEROBIN engines (both went to the museum at Chilo, Ohio) we are pleased to have another chance to obtain a steamboat engine. The museum at Dubuque was given the engines from the Corps of Engineers sternwheel dredge SAINTE GENEVIEVE. So, old steamboat engines are being distributed far and wide -- but we can boast that we are the ONLY steamboat museum to have an excursion boat brig!!!
