Default Steam Engine & Equipment

Hello all,

I've owned the Chautauqua Belle now for three years, and unfortunately the owners before me stripped her clean of many of the authentic items that were installed on her when she first was built. I'm trying to make her more nostalgic, and being a 20 year old, I haven't had the chance in my life to visit the remaining steamboats left or create many contacts in the field of steamboats...

If any folks know where I could get ahold of vessels or equipment being decommissioned, where I could salvage and preserve there instruments it'd be great. We are also looking to upgrade her two horizontal reciprocating engines with more powerful units.

Any information helps, I try to devote as much time researching and running her, but being a full time student at NY Maritime College, time & money is tight, so hopefully you all can give me some pointers!
