Here are a few boats from my database that are not in Ways (at least not that I have been able to find or correlate).

AID: blt 1869, Pittsburgh, Penn., Sternwheel catamaran snagboat, 136’x54’?x5.6’, blt. as a wrecking boat and converted for use as a snagboat on the Red, may have been a bootjack type. Arrived Shreveport 10 Jan 1873, used in removal of Red River Raft. A number of photos of her exist. Masters Thomas Rogers thru Jun ’73, T. B. Hiserman after June. Grounded, worn out at Shreveport, Mar 1878, dismantled 1879, machinery shipped to St. Louis. (Don’t know which boat, if any, it went to.)
