Not meaning to split-hairs, but at least one other operating sternwheel steamboat has a steam powered AC/dynamo, that being, of all things, the LIBERTY BELLE at Disney World (formerly the Richard F. Irvine). She's obviously not an overnight passenger boat, nor in the MQ's league, but just wanted to point that out as FYI. (I responded in this forum to avoid clutter on the DQ forum). :-)
