In another thread,Shipyard asked about the Weber W. Sebald. Now at long last some of the boat remains. The boats sternwheel has been salvaged from the Sebald wreck and is being rebuilt and on display at the Pt. Pleasant,WV river museum. The remains of the wheel were raised from the Kanawha by Capt. Nelson Jones's Madison Coal & Supply and moved to the museum location. Two gentlemen, Vernon Clifton and Bill Mallette have done most of the labor. The J. Mack Gamble Fund of the S & D financed a large portion of the restoration costs.
