Default Belle of Louisville boiler anniversary

I know it's been at least one blue moon since my last post, but time flies, doesn't it? In my recent annual boiler crawl, I realized these boilers are turning 50 this year. Here's a challenge for all of you steamboat sleuths out there: Is there any other boat known to have run a set of boilers this long? My only recollection is the SAINT PAUL/SENATOR having run one set of boilers at any length near this. Way notes a change in her boilers from three to four, but he doesn't give a date. Is it safe to say the Belle has the longest operating set of Western River style boilers, or maybe just the longest operating set of boilers on a riverboat?
