Master list of remaining steamboats?
[B]Is there a master listing somewhere of all remaining paddle wheelers and steamboats?[/B] It is probably right here on this site but I am missing it. I am primarily looking for cruising boats like the SS[I] Natchez[/I].

Active steamboats
If you're looking for steamboats still operating on the Mississippi River System, here is the list: NATCHEZ, BELLE OF LOUISVILLE, AMERICAN QUEEN

There are steamboats on lakes, two in New York being: MINNE-HA-HA, CHAUTAUQUA BELLE. There are small steam launches like: MISSIE...

Two Mississippi River steamboats not operating but which could resume:

[QUOTE=Matthew Cooper;33015]Don't forget the "Graceful Ghost" of Texas & "Queen of Seattle" of Seattle,WA[/QUOTE]

So there is not really a master list?

In this corner of the world our last little steam launch operating in Juneau was sold and might have moved to the Seattle area.

We have a few non-real-steam paddlewheelers like: [url=]American Empress cruise Columbia River Snake River[/url] and [url=]Riverboat Discovery[/url]

I am a few hundred miles away but I am hearing rumors that the Queen of Seattle is closed(?) [url=]Queen of Seattle Paddle Wheel Cruises - CLOSED - South Lake Union - Seattle, WA | Yelp[/url]

That's right, there is no master list, just in our minds and hearts...

Steamboats Today Pictorial Directory
[I][B][/B][/I]In 1986, Tom Rhodes and Harley Scott published a 146 page book entitled [I][B]Steamboats Today - A Pictorial Directory of North American Vessels[/B][/I]. Now out of print, it is a fine listing of most of the steamboats that were operating at that time, as well as those which were retired and being used as restaurants, museums, etc.

Check ebay and for possible availability.

50 States
This list of steam paddle wheelers in all 50 states is not bad: [url=]Riverboats of the Fifty States[/url]

Not bad but the list needs cleanup
It's not a bad list but its outdated. Lot of broken links or outdated information. It still lists the Julia Belle Swain as operating, though they haven't actually operated in about 7 years (though thanks to new ownership, hopefully the day will come in the not-to-distant future that she'll run again). A few others that I looked at had outdated links. Still, not a bad list to start from.
