In my research on California Steamboats, on of my favorite stories is of an eastern company building a schooner, and before it was decked out, it was sunk, and a paddle wheel riverboat floated over it, the schooner hull was lifted, and with the steamboat within it's hull, decked and finished. The boat was then sailed to California where the process was reversed, and the schooner set sail east out of California, while the riverboat went into service on the California River systems. My notes are too buried to tell you the name of the steamboat; I don't think the name of the schooner, nor it's eventual fate is known.
