Default Another Howard Boat found

Bear put this link in another thread and I found a boat we have been looking for on here forever. The old BELLE CAROL from Nashville which was originally a Howard built sternwheel towboat called KANAWHA.

Built in 1925, the measurements of this hull match the BELLE CAROL/KANAWHA to a "T" (84'x18'). She was renamed ZACHARY TAYLOR during an operation in Pittsburgh, PA in the mid-1980's and was reconfigured. This is unmistakeably her!

Interestingly enough, she was last operating in New Jersey and is now in Florida. Other than the Alaska boats, I am wondering if she might be the next in line for farthest traveled Howard Built boat?

The stern shot in this link shows a hexagonal paddlewheel shaft as well.

She has always been a pretty boat in all her names and operations. At this price, looks like she is going to be a pretty boat for someone for along time!
