Default Identify The Boat II

Once again I need help identifing the boat in these pictures. What I know is that my wife's grandmother, grandfather and another couple apparently went on one of the famous "Meet The Boat" trips. People would get on the boat either at Louisville or Cincinnati; the boats would leave at their respective city at the same time. Wherever the boats met, they would tie off together and the Louisville passengers would transfer to the downbound boat, the Cincinnati passengers the upbound boat. It would make a nice day long excursion and they were highly popular and went on for years.
Luckily they took along the family camera and my wife's grandfather, Sherman Vogt, being an amature photographer knew how to use it.
Time frame was around 1914/15.
1. The two couples standing apparently on the skylight roof. My wife's future grandparents are the couple on the left.
2. The two girls sitting on the stairs from the roof to the texas.
3. My wife's future garndmother standing at the entrance to the teas "front porch".
