Engines were scrapped in 1952 by Capt. John Beatty when he partly dismantled the boat to become his floating office at Fernbank, below Cincinnati. John was a whistle collector, and I've always wondered what became of the D.W.Wisherd's whistles, over the years. They were not amongst the collection that Dan Webster auctioned-off about 7 years ago at Warsaw, KY.
