The Producers was a nice looking boat. It has the lines of a sternwheeler, but was built at Howard in 1928 as a single screw towboat. I got my copy of "From Paddlewheels To Propellers" out, and found some info on it. It was originally named the J.J. Hennen. Howards promoted the fact that it was built with their patented flanking rudders. The Hennen brothers ran into trouble when the Depression hit, and Howard had to repossess the boat. Howard finally sold it again in 1934 for $16,500, about two-thirds its value.
